SMART Course Catalog

SMART’s free workshops prepare job seekers for re-entering the workforce, transitioning into new careers, or entering the workforce for the first time. Each workshop is taught by a Smart Workforce Center instructor. A variety of learning platforms are used, including in-person and interactive virtual learning. SMARTʼs workshops are designed to prepare job seekers with the skills needed to be successful in the workplace. 


Businesses can also take advantage of SMARTʼs workshops by sending their current employees to learn new skills that will benefit the employee and contribute to greater success for the business.


We believe a healthy business community creates economic vitality and we are dedicated to helping our job seekers find and secure self-sufficient wages and sustainable employment in careers that they love.
