The mission of Workforce Services at East Mississippi Community College is to enhance the economic opportunities for the residents of our district in order for them to achieve the American Dream. We will partner with area Business and Industry to meet their workforce training needs. For people seeking employment or changing careers, we will provide counseling and employability skills training. We will assist local economic organizations in retaining and expanding existing business and industry and recruiting new business and industry to our community.
Workforce Development coordinators work closely with businesses to design and present the types of training on demand that are needed by the clients. Training is presented only after extensive collaboration with the client to determine the exact needs of the business and the outcomes expected.
A typical training scenario utilizes both lecture and hands-on work relevant to the training being conducted. Our training is conducted using personnel from the business requesting training, college personnel from both academic and vocational/technical areas and subject area experts. The length of training varies and is dependent upon the scope. In fiscal year 2009-2010, the Workforce Services at EMCC delivered 884,564 hours of workforce training to 6,427 participants.
