Training Available For Health Care

workforce

Wyoming workers seeking careers in health care received a tremendous boost as the result of a federal grant awarded to the Department of Workforce Services worth nearly $5 million. The grant, which was awarded through a competitive process, was announced by the U.S. Labor Secretary Wednesday.  It will allow training of more than 14-hundred Wyoming workers over the next four years in occupations such as Registered Nurse, Medical Records Technician, Health Information Technician and Dental Assistant.  Training will target low-income single mothers with children at home, Native Americans, veterans and eligible spouses, unemployed workers, low-skilled workers, and those requiring training/education to advance into the health care field. The program is being administered in collaboration with two other lead partners: Central Wyoming College and CLIMB Wyoming.  Several health care employers and other educational institutions are also providing services including St. John’s Medical Center in Jackson.
