Customized Workforce Training

A prime regional leader in Workforce Education, the Pennsylvania Highlands Workforce Continuing Education department has provided training to over 25,000 employees in the Southern Alleghenies over the past 15 years. Many organizations and businesses have limits on how, when, and where they can conduct training. We work with business and industry to devise a strategy that best meets a company's needs within a time frame and budget that supports its core mission.

Our staff works with company personnel to determine specific needs, including availability and competencies of employees, identifying and developing a curriculum, and determining outcomes that will support the goals established by a company's strategic plan.

Whether it is on-site or at one of the College's regional facilities, or through a hybrid approach such as combining online with classroom training, our goal is to improve a business's operations and help the economic vitality of the region. In pursuit of this goal, we want to make Pennsylvania Highlands the college of choice when it comes to workforce education.

We are ready to work for you! Get started today by calling 814.262.3813.
