We hear the phrase “workforce development” on the local, regional, state and national level on a regular basis. The phrase, typically related to economic development, focuses on everything from addressing the skills gap and underemployed individuals to overcoming barriers to entry into the workforce.

Workforce development is vital in all industries, from manufacturing to healthcare and all areas in-between. Custom Training Solutions (CTS), a division of Northwest State Community College, is committed to providing both individuals and organizations a competitive advantage through hands-on learning about the latest tools, techniques, and best practices in all industries. We provide training and consultative solutions to companies in the areas of advanced manufacturing, computer applications and programming, safety and leadership, industrial automation and maintenance. CTS is active in northwest Ohio and beyond, working with employers to develop training and learning opportunities to meet current and future needs.
