About Workforce Development

Preparing a skilled labor force is a priority and focus of the Workforce and Economic Development Division (WEDD) of Kanawha Valley Community and Technical College (KVCTC).

WEDD delivers workforce development by aligning education and training with employer needs and economic development initiatives to:

  • Deliver customized credit or non-credit programs in various time frames other than the traditional semester and at different locations;
  • Implement additional cooperative-education programs;
  • Increase the innovative use of technology to deliver technical education;
  • Deliver training programs that document achievement of professional certification standards in noncredit or credit formats; and
  • Enable progression from skill-sets to certifications to one-year certificates to AAS degrees for Occupational and Technical programs.

The Workforce & Economic Development Division of KVCTC creates and delivers education and training programs to build the skills and abilities of the workforce in our region.

Workforce training programs help businesses and industries increase profits and productivity through employee skills enhancement.

Education and training programs increase the marketable job skills of individuals to improve their earning capacity and provide new opportunities to enhance their quality of life and improve the overall standard of living for the greater Kanawha Valley communities that we serve.
