Work with local employers and the Monmouth County Workforce Development Agency to identify current workforce needs as well as current and projected workplace skill sets; design training programs for workers to meet those marketplace needs

Identifying local needs, such as construction and health care, and matching training and candidates to those needs will create a more streamlined jobs pipeline.
