In today’s technology-driven world, employees must be up-to-date on the latest advances within their industries. A prime example is healthcare: Think robotic surgery, telemedicine, advanced diagnostics, to name a few. Partnerships between hospitals and community colleges and four-year institutions, as well as community organizations, are springing up to feed the hunger for skilled healthcare employees. In addition, a number of community college and CTE programs have been created to re-educate older workers aiming to extend their skills and come back from a downsizing or to postpone retirement. Discover some current best practices in continuing education and how employers are using these programs to plug needed workers into critical slots.
