Serving the Greater Waco Community

Supporting Industry with a Strong Talent Pipeline

We have joined forces with the city of Waco, McLennan County and other community partners to construct a workforce training center. Together, we’ll deliver custom workforce training and microcredentials aimed at addressing the industrial skills gap for existing and future industries of Waco and McLennan County.

The new training facility offers Wacoans the opportunity to get the skills needed for the growing job market from Central Texas’ top industry employers. With hands-on short-term training, residents of Waco can thrive in their careers as we continue to thrive as a community.
