The construction industry is one of the fastest areas of employment growth in Utah. With development on the rise, the need for skilled people working in the industry continues to increase. To meet this growing need, Salt Lake Community College has developed a Framing Assistant course, geared to helping people start careers in construction.

4 ways SLCC can help your business grow while unemployment is low

Utah’s unemployment numbers are holding steady at 3.1 percent as of January, according to the Department of Workforce Services. With such low unemployment rates, the best thing a business can do is develop their existing workforce. Here are a few things you may not know about the workforce training available at Salt Lake Community College.

  1. We can supplement your existing training team. Many companies and organizations have trainers or human resource teams devoted to training, but find themselves stretched thin. With the resources available at Salt Lake Community College, we can bolster your existing training programs and help you find additional ways to help your team grow. If your company is located in Salt Lake County, there may be opportunities for subsidized training.
  2. There is no training too big or too small. Our team is ready to help your corporate group develop an accelerated business degree for a cohort of your employees, or help you find a solution for teaching a small group of employees a new piece of machinery. We even offer short-term intensive training to individuals looking to improve their employment prospects.
  3. No trainer? No problem! For companies without the resources to support full-time training staff, Salt Lake Community College’s Workforce & Economic Development team can fill that gap. Whether training needs are in information technology, transportation, healthcare, energy, manufacturing, technical trades, business and finance or general education we can help find, or develop courses that fill the training gap.
  4. There’s always more to learn! While it may make sense to reach out to SLCC to help train employees at your snowboard company on new skills through our composites program, it might not occur that they could benefit from additional training in a computer class, which could help with employee retention and morale.
