In Continuing Education & Workforce Development, we work closely with our community partners to determine areas of need within our community. We have discovered that there is a growing demand right here in Pitt County for workers with knowledge in skilled trades. This means there are jobs available right now in the areas of Welding, Electrical Wiring, HVAC, Plumbing, Carpentry, and more. Companies are willing to hire individuals who show promise and are willing to learn.
Our specialty is short-term training so many of our classes run around 6-8 weeks long and are offered on evenings and/or Saturdays to accommodate busy schedules and those that have day jobs. Some classes we have are pre-scheduled, but others we will run based on the amount of people interested. Our goal is to be flexible and work with changing community needs.
