Train Your Workforce
A skilled workforce is important to the success of any business, and Greene County understands that providing both preparatory and continued training is imperative to economic growth. The Greene County Partnership cooperates with three local institutions to provide education and training opportunities. Please visit their websites for more information or contact Christina Potts at firstname.lastname@example.org with specific training needs.
Tennessee College of Applied Technology Satellite Campus – Greene Technology Center
The Greene Technology Center provides instructional programs to train or retrain individuals to meet the occupational and technical needs of local businesses. The center serves both city and county high school and adult students.
In Spring 2018, the Greene Technology Center, a joint city and county school systems operation, will begin offering dual enrollment classes for Tennessee College of Applied Technology (TCAT) – Morristown. High school juniors and seniors will receive high school and college credit at the same time. Dual enrollment is available for automotive collision repair, cosmetology, computer information technology, industrial electricity, machine tooling, and welding programs. The center’s presence here has often been cited as influential in helping to recruit industries to the area. In addition to the TCAT programs, the local center offers trade programs in electricity, machine technology, emergency services, nursing, culinary arts, coding/game design, criminal justice, and engineering/robotics.
