The main goal of the Trinity Valley Community College's Workforce Education Division is to provide premier workforce training resources for students, local business and industry as well as other organizations in the Athens five county service areas of Anderson, Henderson, Kaufman, Rains and Van Zandt.
The Trinity Valley Community College (TVCC) Workforce Education Division provides the traditional credit programs (many of which can be completed online) as well as skilled classroom/lab program offerings. In addition, TVCC can assess, design, and deliver customized affordable training for your business or organization through our Adult & Continuing Education department. If you are thinking about starting a new business, please consider using the free services offered by our Small Business Development Center.
Students, regardless of gender, are encouraged to look at all Workforce Education programs. Many students find rewarding careers in what is usually termed as 'non-traditional' positions. As examples, hospitals and other healthcare employers are in need of male and female nurses, as well as women have proven to be successful welders. Important aspects to consider when choosing a career are finding a career that you enjoy doing and one that you can earn the kind of living that you would expect.
TVCC provides many services to workforce education students including childcare reimbursement, work-study jobs, tutoring and computer labs. Because of the Perkins Federal Vocational Act, the college is able to provide these services as well as state-of-the-art equipment and training materials to help you prepare for your chosen career. The college also participates in Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) programs such as the Workforce Investment Act (WIA). High school articulation of courses provided through Advanced Technical Credit (ATC) and dual credit (college and high school credit) are offered in many area high schools. Please feel free to contact our office for more information on any of these services.
New admission requirements state that students entering college must have either a high school diploma or a General Equivalency Diploma (GED). For those who have not completed their high school education, TVCC provides free GED preparation classes through the Adult Education Department.
Most importantly, our TVCC faculty and staff are here to help you succeed in your chosen career field. You will find that our instructors not only have educational experience but also have real life business and industry expertise. They understand what is needed to help you succeed.
