pathways to employment

Global Vocation Training Center

Educate! Empower! Employ!

Global Vocation Center creates pathways to employment for adolescents and adults through skills training and life learning opportunities. Our students include recent high school graduates, ex-offenders, unemployed and underemployed men and women, veterans, dislocated workers, and anyone else who is struggling to find work in the Charlotte metropolitan area.

We specifically provide accelerated training in the areas of commercial/residential/industrial electrical installation and HVAC installation –skillsets currently very much needed in Charlotte. We train 10-15 individuals a session, with each session lasting 6 months/4 days a week. The training includes both classroom lectures and interactive lab sections each day so that students can practice their newly acquired skills. Our drills and training modules prepare them for a final, timed examination and a successful certification process.

Some students will have the opportunity to experience on-the-job training while earning an income working for IES and Southeastern HVAC. Career and technical training in the U.S. hasn’t evolved to keep up with the transformation of the modern economy, and there is a significant gap between job seekers’ skills and employers’ needs. We are making sure that those who need employment the most will be prepared to meet this need.
