El Paso Community College has helped take education far beyond what most of us consider when we think of "college" by emphasizing a different word in its name: "community". And the evolution continues with EPCC's Center for Corporate and Workforce Training.

El Paso Townsquare spoke with EPCC CCWT's Program Specialist Estela Ortíz about the many ways EPCC is helping Borderlanders find good jobs via certification programs and EPCC's partnership with JER Online, where students can take courses and complete certifications 100-percent online.

A handful of certification programs tailored to El Paso's construction boom will begin early next month.

Ortíz talked about how CCWT not only helps job seekers but also works with El Paso businesses to offer certifications for the jobs that businesses know will require knowledgeable employees.
