The College of Southern Nevada and Workforce Connections established a partnership to open the first of four Employ NV Career Hubs on the college’s largest campus.
The unprecedented partnership between the state’s largest higher education institution and Southern Nevada’s local workforce development board will help train and retrain the region’s workforce and fill critical jobs in manufacturing, healthcare, information technology, skilled trades and logistics.
The first Employ NV Career Hub will be housed in the Charleston Campus Student Union, creating a one-stop shop for career training and employment services, as well as CSN advising, counseling, and career and transfer services. Services will be available in person or remotely.
CSN has created accelerated, career-focused degree and certificate programs in key industries to help get Southern Nevada back to work. Job seekers can earn certificates, credentials, or degrees in programs ranging from three days to nine months long depending on the program of interest. Those wishing to earn a college degree will already have a head start at CSN. Short term reskilling, short term training in a new industry, long term training with credentials, and associate degrees will all be available.
More Employ NV Career Hubs are scheduled to open on CSN’s North Las Vegas and Henderson campuses this year, with others coming soon at CSN locations throughout Southern Nevada.
