The Heartland Career Center serves students by strengthening their job search skills, identifying and working toward career goals, and making connections with employers.
In this region on the state, there are over 17,000 jobs in advanced manufacturing. That's 65% above the national average. It is projected that there will be 3,744 unfilled jobs in 10 years. As the need for advanced manufacturing jobs continues to grow, the school needed to expand. This community currently does not have a space or program to support adults earning advanced manufacturing & health credentials. This prompted the Heartland Career Center to embark on the process of applying for a $5 million federal grant to build an adult education center that will offer advanced manufacturing & health credentials.
