The division will be launching the new Adult Education BITES program, which stands for Business, Industry, Technology and Education Solutions.
“We’re focusing on customized training as a way to help take care of our local businesses,” offered Jaunzemis, ”This new opportunity will allow employers to become more efficient and eliminate the obstacles of training their workforce themselves.
We have a great group of professions who will provide several types of training, from computer skills and business management to machining, welding and credentialing test review and preparation. We’ll be offering training at the worksite or on our campus.”
The division is also working on establishing free workshops for businesses.
