Aims Community College Partners with Business and Industry to Upskill the Workforce
Aims Community College cultivates programs and partnerships that serve an evolving workforce. The Aims workforce development team has launched new open enrollment courses to serve local businesses and their employees.
Spring and summer open enrollment opportunities include:
- 5S and Visual Management
- Value Stream Mapping
- Seven Tools of Quality
- Keeping and Retaining Employees
- Basics of Employment Law
- Project Management
A series of safety seminars in Lockout-Tagout, Fire Extinguisher, and OSHA 30 for General Industry and Construction is also available.
Aims workforce development course topics come from the needs of the local business community. In February, twenty-five business and industry leaders met with the Aims Workforce Development and Continuing Education departments in their first advisory board meeting to discuss what specific training and course topics would assist their company in meeting its goals. Popular topics shared by the business and industry leaders included leadership development, continuous improvement, and safety.
"We take pride in our role as ambassadors for Aims to the business community. We love to introduce companies to all the wonderful academic programs, services and state-of-the-art facilities available to them and their employees," stated Shayna Howell, Aims Workforce Development and Innovation director.
In addition to the courses, Aims works with companies to provide quality, cost-effective, customized corporate training solutions to upskill their workforce. Aims offers training when, where, and how a company requests it. Unlike other one-size-fits-all approaches to employee training, Aims corporate training services tailor each course to a company's specific needs.
