Center for Corporate and Professional Development Training
Economic Development and Training
Pensacola State College inhabits 3 campuses in Escambia County and one campus in Santa Rosa County. Pensacola State College leadership believes strongly in the strength of the local economy and its potential for growth. In order to best reach that potential, Pensacola State College believes that community partnerships are essential to attract businesses and permanent residents.
The Department of Workforce and Economic Development (WED) is Pensacola State College's commitment to that goal. WED is responsible for seeking out, developing, and growing partnerships in the community that will attract businesses, expand opportunities for residents, and ultimately create a better way of life for everyone in Northwest Florida.
The Pensacola State College Institute for Corporate and Professional Training is an important piece of that effort. The Institute provides opportunities for skilled workers and professionals within local organizations to take their career to the next level, either through our ongoing courses or by locating education at worksites and offices. This has three economic impacts.
One, readily available training and continuing education is one of the primary factors that companies look for when considering relocation. Two, our programs create a more highly skilled and qualified workforce, a second priority for retaining or relocating companies to the Pensacola Bay area. Three, the availability of this education encourages individuals that this is a place they want to live and grow.
Pensacola State College is committed to making a growth impact on the economy of the Pensacola Bay area. It is actively seeking to support and partner with other organizations committed to the same goals. This action may take traditional educational roles. It may also mean something new and exciting!
