Workforce Training

Workforce training is offered in Prentiss County through the WIN Job Center and local community colleges. These customized training programs are offered to local businesses and industries.

Prentiss County is home to Northeast Mississippi Community College and participates in the Workforce Investment Network (WIN) Program to provide job placement and training assistance. Specific training programs can be designed to fit individual company needs, and the OJT component can be used to reimburse an employer up to 50% of a new employee’s beginning wages during a specified training period.

The Center for Manufacturing Excellence at the University of Mississippi in Oxford brings together expertise from traditional disciplines with input from industry experts to create programs that help students acquire not only the technical skills needed for successful manufacturing but also knowledge of management, human resources, communication, accounting, and leadership.
