Train Your Workforce
A skilled workforce is important to the success of any business, and Greene County understands that providing both preparatory and continued training is imperative to economic growth. The Greene County Partnership cooperates with three local institutions to provide education and training opportunities. Please visit their websites for more information or contact Tom Ferguson, firstname.lastname@example.org, with specific training needs.
Tennessee College of Applied Technology Satellite Campus - Greene Technology Center
The Greene Technology Center provides instructional programs to train or retrain individuals to meet the occupational and technical needs of local businesses. The center serves both city and county high school and adult students.
In the fall of 2013, the Greene Technology Center became a satellite campus for the Tennessee College of Applied Technology in Morristown, the premier provider for workforce development through the State of Tennessee. TCAT classes for certification in welding, machine tool technology, and industrial electricity are now offered at the Greeneville site. The center is also in discussions with TCAT to bring two more programs to the Greeneville campus within the next year.
New "Workforce Solutions" Facility - Walters State Community College
Walters State Community College (WSCC) recently launched a “Workforce Solutions” facility to train welders in open enrollment stick, mig and tig (heliarc) welding programs, as well as providing AWS certified welding tests and consulting services for process efficiency. The center also provides electrical, PLC, TOSHA and other technical programs, as well as SMT training programs that deal with technical skills upgrades.
