Thank you Amy for the comment. At WMCAT we work extremely close with our employer partners to ensure our training matches their employment needs. We have an advisory committee with professionals from Spectrum, Mercy Health, Meijers and other employers who help us develop curriculum and prepare for market trends and changes. We know we are fulfilling a dual purpose of moving under employed adults toward economic stability while helping local employers fulfill their need for well-trained employees.
