Looking for a career with a living wage employment opportunity? Local industries are looking for skilled employees. The Workforce and Business Development Center at the Clarkston Campus of Walla Walla Community College will offer 1-year Certificates and 2-year Degrees in Business, Industrial Maintenance Technology, Plant Operations Mechanic, and Welding. It is scheduled to open its doors to incoming students in Fall of 2017
The Workforce and Business Development Center was conceived to address the current skills gap in the Lewiston-Clarkston valley – jobs in the region are going unfilled each year due to a lack of skilled workers. The funding for the Center is comprised of a U.S. Economic Development Administration grant along with college funding and contributions from donors. The Center is being constructed by Kenaston Corportaion, a local contractor.
