Highly-skilled and trained workers are the driving force behind a strong economy and business-sector growth. Whether in manufacturing, healthcare, finance, or technology, employees who hold certifications and credentials are better equipped to meet the demands of today’s workplace and help their companies thrive and grow. CCV’s workforce education programs are designed to build on this idea. Through our existing courses and workshops, our customized trainings, and our comprehensive certification and credentialing programs, CCV is empowering individuals, building better teams, and working to strengthen Vermont by strengthening its workforce.

Our Partnerships

Darn Tough
Man sitting in front of thread

Kris Matheson is obsessed with socks. He brags about the drawers full of them he has at home, and the fancy materials they’re made of; he ogles the rows of sewing machines that knit them; he shows off the dozens of new designs displayed inside the Cabot Hosiery Mills in Northfield, where Darn Tough socks are made.

Brattleboro Memorial Hospital
Medical assistant in doctor's office

Sandy Sherman always knew that she wanted to work in healthcare. When she heard about CCV’s accelerated medical assistant program, offered in partnership with Brattleboro Memorial Hospital, she knew she had to apply. 

Hazelett Corporation
Two men inside manufacturing plant

Brothers Cody and Tyler Schmoll are proud employees at Hazelett, and both completed the Certified Production Technician (CPT) training program offered through a CCV/Hazelett partnership. The CPT is a nationally recognized credential, and Cody and Tyler signed up immediately after finding out about it.
