Corporate and Community Education

The Corporate and Community Education Division serves as a catalyst for the economic and lifelong development of the citizens and businesses/organizations of Anderson, Oconee, and Pickens counties by offering quality and relevant QuickJobs, certificate programs, and courses.

Corporate and Community Education Division QuickJobs Training Programs

Even with high unemployment, many jobs continue to go unfilled. Job seekers hear time and time again that they just don’t have the occupational skills the company seeks. Corporate and Community Education is dedicated to working to help you get the skills you need to find a job…fast! 

Why Consider a QuickJobs Training Program?

  • You can start a new career or move up to a better one.
  • You can develop and use the skills you learn to start a small business.
  • Despite the current economy, there is still a demand for skilled workers in South Carolina.
  • Industry experts agree that at least 65% of future jobs will require specific or occupational training, not a four-year degree.
  • The training is developed for fields where job growth is expected.

QuickJobs programs can be completed in less than three months. For a current schedule of classes, please contact the Corporate and Community Education Customer Resource Center in the Industrial and Business Development Center on the Pendleton Campus at 864-646-1700 or visit the division website at www.tctc.edu/learn.
