Workforce Development Training Programs Featured in Chamber Magazine

Sinclair Workforce Development’s Bio-Science and Health Care Information Technology (HIT) training programs are the subjects of an article in the Fall 2011 edition of Focus, the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce’s quarterly magazine distributed to approximately 6,000 Chamber members and regional businesses. Copies are available online at http://www.daytonchamber.org/index.cfm/focus-magazine.

Sinclair Workforce Development and Cincinnati State Technical and Community College have been offering short-term training classes for the Bioscience Industry Workforce Preparedness project. Sinclair will train at least 107 individuals in this seven-week course. Funding has also been available for a two-year Associate Degree training track. The latest short-term class began August 8 at the new Sinclair/Cincinnati State Bioscience Manufacturing Technology Lab located at Cincinnati State’s Workforce Development Center in Evendale, north of Cincinnati.

Sinclair is one of 17 members of The Midwest Community College Health Information Technology Consortium. As a result, Sinclair WFD is committed to training up to 300 students in the two roles of Implementation Support Specialists and Technical/Software Support Staff. The third class of trainees began studies July 25 at Sinclair’s Miami Valley Research Park location in Kettering.
