Center for Workforce Development


Workforce Development training is short term non-credit and web-based career training designed to quickly retrain or recertify individuals.  The focus is to upgrade the skills of unemployed or underemployed individuals and quickly return them to the workforce.  Our staff maintains a collaborative relationship with the Missouri Career Centers to develop programming that is relevant in the communities we serve.  The Center for Workforce Development is also an ACT certified WorkKeys assessment center and can help individuals achieve their National Career Readiness Certificate.


The Center for Workforce Development provides short term non-credit and web-based career training.  In areas such as:

  • certified nurse assistant
  • green technology
  • professional administrative assistant
For a summary of current workforce issues and trends in our region, we invite you to read   The State of the St. Louis Workforce Report, compiled by St. Louis Community College – Workforce & Community Development.  This informative report was developed through the analysis of three research components: (i) Employer Survey Telephone Interviews, (ii) Dislocated Worker Survey and (iii) Case Study Interviews.   Click here to learn more or download the full report.

East Central receives referrals from a variety of federally funded programs which give assistance to laid-off workers in the service area. Individual counseling to determine career goals is provided. Training opportunities are outlined to those workers who require retraining into a different career.  For more information or to inquire about eligibility, please contact your local Missouri Career Center.
