Workforce Education – Who We Are
TVCC’s Workforce Education division provides lifelong learning opportunities, welcoming people of all ages and backgrounds, helping them reach their personal and professional potential. Our programs are geared to meet the needs of today’s student by offering traditional credit programs, skilled classroom and lab programs and courses that also can be completed online.
Our advising team partners with our students every step of the way through their college experience, providing guidance and career support to help them reach their goals and successfully find employment in their chosen career field. It can be difficult to navigate ‘what happens next?’ when students step out into the workforce after college, and it’s important to help you identify the profession you’ll enjoy working in as well as earn the kind of living that meets your expectations.
Many of our students find rewarding careers in positions once thought of as traditionally gender-specific and are very successful in their chosen fields; examples of those professions embracing diverse workforces are hospital and healthcare employers - they are in need of both male and female nursing professionals as well as the welding industry welcomes both skilled men and women welders.
In addition to the many student services we offer, TVCC Workforce Education offers customized training solutions for our surrounding businesses and community organizations. From assessment to design and delivery, we provide affordable training programs to help support their individual workforce needs through our Adult & Continuing Education department.

Our programs prepare you for your careers in:
Business, Technology & Computer Science:
TVCC Workforce Education offers articulation of courses through our Advanced Technical Credit (ATC) and partner with our surrounding community high schools in dual credit programs, both college and high school credit, helping students become familiar with expectations of college academics so they can successfully transition to their future college campus environment.
In addition to dual credit options available, our cooperative education services provide an educational strategy process involving changing the behavior of our students through real-world work experience. It is a method of instruction that involves the student partnering the application of theory they’ve learned with a real-world work setting environment. With this strategy process, the student can recognize their own abilities, skills, and potential as the real world becomes more relevant to them. This experience is selected and measured in such a way that quality growth for the student is assured. The student's instructor or course coordinator is the key facilitator in the cooperative education process and monitors the process and relationship between the student and the employer.
Admission requirements state all 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 wonderful TVCC faculty and staff members are here to help you succeed in both your collegiate and career field goals. Our instructors provide students with not only their educational expertise but their career expertise in business and industry. They understand what is needed to help you succeed and work with you to ensure you do!
