The college will partner with any regional industry, business, governmental, non-profit or other employer to deliver training—either of the faculty's own design or through brokered agreements with other training providers—in any area of desired workforce development.


Employers may choose to offer customized trainings at their own facilities, in Eastern's classrooms, or another convenient location.
