The Workforce Development Division of the Northern Pennsylvania Regional College provides non-credit training for businesses and residents of our nine-county service area. Our program offerings are geared toward high-demand occupations and other identified industry needs. Training opportunities feature a variety of courses and programs in technical education, professional training, and customized training. Some programs award nationally recognized certificates. Enrollment into the various programs is generally open. However, some accredited programs (e.g. commercial driver’s license, emergency medical services, and nurse aide) have specific enrollment requirements.
Training is provided through the college’s live interactive, instructional television at locations across our nine-county service area. We are also capable of providing on-site training at a single site or multiple sites.
Many of the training programs are eligible for funding through Pennsylvania's Eligible Training Provider List (ETPL) and Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) list. Unemployed and under-employed individuals should consult with their local CareerLink to determine their eligibility for funding to cover some or all the tuition and fees associated with these programs.
