Workforce Development Center Awarded National Accreditation

New Community Workforce Development Center has been awarded accreditation by the Commission of the Council on Occupational Education (COE), a nonprofit organization that grants institutional accreditation recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.

“This validates our career and technical programs, it ensures our connections to employers and it enables interested applicants to apply for Title IV financial aid assistance,” said New Community Workforce Development Center Director Rodney Brutton. “It really means that students who are interested in our programs should feel confident that New Community Workforce Development Center offers programs that are relevant, have been vetted and have been proven to be useful and successful. It adds value to our work and credibility by an independent evaluator.”
