JCC ranked third in a list of workforce development programs published in a recent issue of Buffalo Business First.

The annual ranking, based on the number of programs offered by area colleges and universities and the number of participants in those programs, listed 21 western New York institutions.

A total of 5,337 individuals from 71 regional public and private organizations in western New York and northwestern Pennsylvania participated in 398 contract training programs offered by JCC's Center for Continuing Education during the 2009-10 academic year.

The programs – a mix of workforce development and customized job skills training courses – were provided through Jamestown and Cattaraugus County campuses and North County and Warren extension centers.

The programs ranged from customized management and leadership training, social media and computer-related training programs, welding techniques, continuous improvement methods, and training needs analysis to skills assessment for credentialing needs.
