Tyler: Good for Business
At Tyler, we focus on student success and equip our graduates with workforce-ready skills. To do that, we partner with a variety of companies, from Fortune 500s to small business innovators.
Our collaborations range from customizable courses that broaden employee skill sets to industry advisory boards that ensure our academic programs deliver the quality employees that local businesses need.
Recent examples have included partnering with local hospitals to provide clinical sites for Tyler nursing students to gain hands-on experience and working with local manufacturers to help their employees obtain specific in-demand industry credentials.
Our Training Options
Through partnership with the Community College Workforce Alliance (CCWA), we offer non-credit education and specialized programs and services, including short-term workforce credentials that train participants in as little as six weeks for the most in-demand jobs in Virginia. CCWA’s new Talley Workforce Center on our Chester campus allows us to present expanded course offerings and explore new partnerships with local businesses.
On our two campuses and online, Tyler offers more than 75 degree and certificate programs including options in high-demand fields like healthcare, information technology, manufacturing and skilled trades, early-childhood education and public safety.
