About Workforce Continuing Education

Wake Tech plays an active role in workforce training and lifelong learning for citizens of the Capital area. The College's Workforce Continuing Education programs provide courses for those who need to train, retrain, and upgrade skills in a vocational or professional area. Programs include customized training for corporations and businesses, small business counseling and support, public safety officer training, information technology, vocational training, as well as barbering and cosmetology instruction. We also work with those who need to learn English as a second language and those individuals whose education stopped short of high school graduation.

Our Mission

To increase the Capital area workforce pipeline by providing quality workforce training to individuals, corporations and businesses, organizations and municipalities. We will work collaboratively with economic development agencies, chambers of commerce, and the local workforce development board in support of our mission. 

Our Programs

In Workforce Continuing Education, we are flexible! While we have an extensive list of in-person and online classes, we can also create courses to meet the expressed needs of the community. Do you have a group of people interested in learning a topic, but you don't see the class offered at this time? Contact us, and we'll try to help.
