Take Charge

The workforce is changing. Employers are challenged to find the skills they need. Employees mention that lack of training, lack of recognition and lack of growth opportunities are primary reasons for looking for a new position.

If you are an employer, build and retain the workforce you need with the university's customized training solutions. If you are an employee, train up with targeted programs and classes.
