Introduction

Professional & Workforce training provides fast, efficient, in-depth, and highly-interactive safety training through classroom instruction and hands-on experience.

For students who can’t afford the time and resources, trades training provides the skills necessary to become qualified professionals in a variety of trades.

This type of learning, also known as career and technical education (CTE), blends academic and technical instruction to prepare graduates for direct entry into the workforce.

Minnesota firms are struggling to hire qualified mechanics, technicians and other tradespeople.

By 2020, the Center on Education and the Workforce estimates that 65 percent of all occupations will require some form of postsecondary training and education
