Are you getting the results you want out of your employees? OCEWD recognizes that employers and organizations often require employees to have specific skillsets, and when these skills are lacking it can directly affect your bottom line. Sometimes training is needed to increase performance or keep up with changes in the industry. Quite often, this training is not available locally and it is expensive. OCEWD has developed and delivered many successful short-term, industry specific, training at a much more affordable rate. We can work with you to develop training right here at home, from the ground up, to meet your needs.
Benefits of Customized Training
Don’t take our word for it. Hear what local employers are saying about our customized training.
Our experience with OCEWD’s Industrial Automation Series has been nothing short of transformational. They offered an educational resource which taught us theory and practice that has been immediately and directly applicable to our increasing technical demands. Their teaching has increased our ability to innovate and reduced downtime, and our relationship has evolved from student-teacher to strategic partners. This program represents the future and the potential of any technical or industrial manufacturing base we should be able to sustain in Hawaii.
One thing we like about Leeward is that the classes cover exactly what we need. The curriculum was customized for Pacific Allied Products. The training has been excellent, and we feel our outcomes are being met.
The Mission of our Academy is to provide at-risk youth, ages 16-18 years of age, the life skills and tools necessary to become productive members of society. 80% of our Cadets are susceptible of not being able to go into the workforce or education due to economic and geographical obstacles. Leeward CC has produced phenomenal results with the training provided for our Cadets– tailoring each training to meet their needs. For the past 2 years, through help from Leeward CC’s Workforce Development, we have been able to place 76% of our graduates in the workforce and continuing education. Mahalo to the dedicated staff from Leeward CC for providing opportunities for our Cadets to become responsible citizens and, most importantly, a chance to succeed in life.
One of our goals was to provide our workforce with the skills they need so when the opportunity arises for advancement they have the skills they need and will not hesitate to apply. Will (OCEWD) was very helpful in working with us in building a series of courses to suit our needs….it was a perfect fit.
The Office and Staff of The Office of Continuing Education and Workforce Development (OCEWD) is a first class organization. Their ability to accommodate our company’s training requirements and train our employees was more than satisfactory, always willing to make sure we had what we needed! I would not hesitate to use their services again and would highly recommend them for your training requirements.
We chose to partner with Leeward Community College for our CDL Driving program because of the ease in working with them. After discussing our needs, we came up with a mutually beneficial schedule which would allow our employees to work while receiving training. Because of the year-round class schedule, we were able to begin our program earlier than we anticipated. This training will impact our organization greatly. There is a shortage of CDL drivers nationwide and by upgrading the skills of our employees, it allows them to have a career path within our organization.
