The Customized Training Program at Mitchell Community College specializes in the development and delivery of technical training programs and services to promote recruitment and retention of local business and industry.

What We Do
Mitchell Community College delivers state-funded, company-specific training for existing, expanding and new Iredell County manufacturers through the Customized Training Program (CTP).

The NC Department of Commerce and NC Community Colleges join Mitchell to work with Iredell County Economic Development Corporation to attract and retain local industry.   

Why We Do It
A well-trained workforce is a critical consideration in your decision to locate, expand or continue doing business here.

Our role is to provide training for employers to educate:

  • Job candidates (pre-employment)

  • Newly-hired employees

  • Incumbent employees

  • Advancing employees

Customized Training exists to help you become more competitive and weather changes. Our goal is to be your preferred source for workforce and corporate education.

Last year Mitchell Community College enrolled more than 12,000 students in continuing education programs. Those friends, neighbors, relatives, coworkers and fellow county residents gained or improved a skill to make our community strong and vital.

How We Do It
We work with your company to choose core and industry-specific content to train your new employees  or upgrade the skills of longtime employees. Services range from job profiling to post-hiring training in technical and critical soft skills. Our goal is to provide employee training to support three key aspects of your company's well-being:

  • Job Growth

  • Technology Investment

  • Productivity Enhancement

If your organization is creating jobs, investing in new machinery and equipment or streamlining processes for efficiency, you may qualify! Allow us to guide you through a customer-focused process resulting in a qualified, motivated and productive workforce that will ensure both the initial and continued success of your organization. Customized training options include a wide range of possible topics.
