Johnson County has made funding available to train job seekers and employees at little to no cost — and many of JCCC’s Continuing Education courses qualify!

This funding has been earmarked for workforce development to pay for training and skill-building for Johnson County businesses that need to reskill or upskill their workforces.

Individual residents who have experienced job loss or wage cuts may qualify, too.

JCCC Continuing Education is proud to partner with Workforce Partnership through JoCoWorks to provide this vital workforce training to strengthen our local economy.
