Tri-C Workforce Program Draws Visit from Ohio Higher Education Chancellor
Randy Gardner tours mobile training unit as part of In-Demand Jobs Week
Offering training for in-demand jobs is a priority for Ohio Department of Higher Education Chancellor Randy Gardner.
That’s why he visited Northeast Ohio this week to see how Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) is meeting a local company’s needs through a mobile training unit that serves as a classroom on wheels.
Gardner toured the mobile unit at Oatey Co., a Cleveland-based plumbing manufacturer and distributor. The company contracts with Tri-C to provide customized, on-site training for its employees.
The stop was part of In-Demand Jobs Week in Ohio, a statewide campaign meant to increase awareness of employment opportunities. Ohio has more than 270,000 job postings in a wide range of growing fields.
Hundreds of events throughout the state are taking place as part of the campaign.
Gardner met with Tri-C President Alex Johnson; leaders within the College’s award-winning Workforce, Community and Economic Development division; and officials and employees from Oatey during his visit.
Tri-C debuted its mobile unit two years ago. The New York Times featured the College’s innovative approach to delivering skills training in a story earlier this year.
