Office of Economic and Workforce Development (OEWD) employs a sector strategy in developing job training programs. OEWD offers training to residents for entry level positions in high growth industries: Construction, Health Care, Hospitality, and Technology. Each sector academy integrates skill development, support services, and job development to prepare and place individuals for a range of jobs within these thriving industries. Each sector academy was developed in partnership with the industry and by using the most currently available labor-market information (LMI).
