Mobile training unit providing employment skills to Kentuckians

When the Kentucky Community and Technical College System began its Workforce Solutions program in 2000, it picked a very appropriate name.

One of the leading employment training efforts in the state, Workforce Solutions has served more than 3 million Kentuckians. It’s success perhaps is defined by the objective so clearly stated by its name.

The latest example of this successful search for answers is parked on the Elizabethtown Community and Technical College campus. The mobile training unit, a bus equipped for on-site training, is an innovative answer to industrial and business needs.

This external training effort can accommodate up to 16 staffers and the classroom literally can be placed at an business’ doorstep.

The training can be tailored to specific technical skills or address general information areas critical to operational success such as organizational leadership and computer skills. …

Having a skilled and effective workforce is vital to industrial expansion and commercial development. This is yet another way ECTC and KCTCS has stepped forward to help meet the challenge.
