PAST PERFORMANCE - Illinois Central College's newly built Workforce Sustainability Center is now operational. This state-of-the-art facility will build our region’s credentialed workforce to 60% by the year 2025.
The ICC Workforce Sustainability Center fills a critical labor market void in our community which will help both first-time students and those who wish to change career paths. The goal of the Center and its essential workforce development programs is to remove barriers and meet students where they are to enable them to earn credentials and change their lives. These programs include HVAC/Geothermal, Solar, Truck Driver Training, Highway Construction, and pre-apprentice programs. This facility and programming education will develop a ready talent pool and expand the workforce, addressing the primary challenge of regional businesses. This facility will give ICC students the opportunity to complete a degree or certificate in relevant, industry-specific career paths.
The Workforce Sustainability Center will be a tremendous asset for our region’s economy to attract new investment, support, and growth for years to come.
