Workforce Development and Lifelong Learning
The Center for Workforce Development and Lifelong Learning serves as a portal for learning and work across the life span, and functions along two divergent paths.
Provides for professional development and work based experiences ensuring a continuum of lifelong learning. We offer certification and credentialing courses for anyone looking to upgrade professional expertise and occupational skills including Revit Autodesk Training, NCIDQ Preparation Workshop, and Entrepreneurial Studies.
The center provides course participants with access to Villa Maria College’s Student Success Center and our Career Services Office for job placement and research. In addition, we specialize in custom designed workshops tailored to fit any business or industry. These trainings may be conducted at a business location or at Villa Maria College in one of our state of the art computer labs on campus. Throughout the year, we sponsor seminars for the business and industry professionals who may earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for their participation.
Provides access to adult learning opportunities by presenting a series of innovative, high quality and cost effective seminars, workshops, and non credit courses with an emphasis on intellectual and personal growth. Together with our colleagues and community members, we conduct an Alumni Speaker Series, and sponsor numerous community programs and events.
