With strong labor market demand for skilled workers in healthcare, information technology (IT) and skilled trades, Reynolds Community College is planning a multimillion-dollar upgrade of its downtown Richmond campus. These enhancements will include new classrooms, labs and equipment to support new programs in healthcare and IT and expand programs in skilled trades to better meet business demand.
CCWA Vice President for Workforce Development and Credential Attainment Elizabeth Creamer notes that one of the projects in the renovation plans will create three new flex labs for existing and new skilled trades programs. With three new labs, CCWA and Reynolds can become “a primary source of talent development in skilled trades.”
