TORRINGTON, WY - Eastern Wyoming College has the ability to develop customized trainings to fit business needs. One of the most popular needs right now is computer training. Within the past year, EWC has developed and taught 3 different customized computer trainings for local businesses from October 2005 to June 2006.
EWC is dedicated to finding out what training is needed in the community. Once that is determined, we talk to businesses about the specifics including details, hours, and the number of people that would be interested in that specific training. Another factor to determine is the cost by hours, supplies needed for the training, and meals involved if any. A proposal is then presented to the business to see if they are interested in starting the class process.
The following businesses have had computer workforce training and have benefited from it significantly. Wyoming Child and Family had a training in October, 2005 where 16 employees received 16 hours in excel and access. In May, 2006 they had their second training which included 23 employees receiving 16 hours of training in windows, excel, and access. Wyoming County Assessors received training in January, 2006. 9 county assessors received 14 hours of access software training. The Goshen County's Sheriff's Office received training in December, 2005 and April, 2006 with a combined 55 employees receiving 7 hours of computer training in windows, excel, and access.
Dick Fullmer, EWC Community Connections Director commented, "I truly find workforce training interesting and would like to devote more time to it. There is a great need for workforce and workforce training in Wyoming and Goshen County."
Some of these classes can be funded with Workforce Development Training Fund money. For more information please contact Fullmer at 307.532.8323.
