The Workforce and Education Training Program is a partnership between the Regional Development Corporation (RDC) and Northern New Mexico higher education institutions to identify training needs and develop a well-educated workforce in the region. The partnership aims to help Northern New Mexico’s businesses find skilled workers and help ensure jobs are filled by in-state and in-county workers who want to stay in their communities after receiving an education at two- and four-year colleges in the area.
The RDC works with six regional institutions of higher education to create “clear, coherent and structured educational experiences” for students for pursuing relevant certificates and/or degree programs that will successfully lead to careers in the region. Each institution’s program is tailored to their unique student population, community needs, and academic curriculum. Together, these partnerships and initiatives help build a strong workforce in the RDC’s seven county area. CLICK HERE FOR MORE.
