Business & Industry
DCC Workforce Services meets the needs of business and industry head-on with an aggressive line-up of practical coursework that challenges students with real-world applications and hands-on learning opportunities. Designed by industry experts, courses maximize use of DCC's vast line-up of over $2 million in state-of-the-art trainers, simulators, and other industrial equipment. Most of the coursework is offered as part of various Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree programs; however, the curricula can also be delivered through certification programs or as stand-alone courses to meet one-time training needs. DCC's ability to customize its existing coursework, as well as quickly develop entirely new programs is crucial to meeting the needs of both existing industry as well as new businesses that relocate to the Southside Virginia region.
