Wyoming Community Colleges Workforce Development Activities: Overview of Workforce Development Activities
Wyoming Community College Commission
Wyoming Community Colleges are responsive to training and workforce development needs of the state. In February 2004, community college staff began working with the Wyoming Workforce Alliance and Community College Commission staff to address the need for a unified and automatic process that will enable Wyoming's community colleges to track and report workforce development activities throughout the state. During the 2003-2004 academic year, Wyoming's community colleges offered credit occupational/technical (traditionally referred to as "vocational") courses and awarded associate degrees and certificates to students in those areas. This document contains statistical information on each specific vocational degree and certificate offered. Throughout the past year, Wyoming's seven community colleges have made strides in strengthening and developing alliances with state and local entities that address education, employment, and economic development. Through their efforts, Wyoming's community colleges helped businesses, organizations, and government departments assess their workforce training needs in an accurate and effective manner. This document also contains highlights of their successes.
