SCVEDC knows that finding skilled workers is one of the toughest challenges facing businesses in today’s tight labor market. That’s why training and apprenticeship programs are so important. Companies are growing their own talent, but are tapping into resources such as community colleges and the workforce development boards that are part of the public workforce system. In the past year, new apprenticeship programs for the aerospace and logistics industries are helping employees advance their skills quickly.
