Training and Services for Displaced Workers

The University of Central Missouri uses a competency-based approach to workforce development, focusing on training that leads to jobs. We conduct our own research, talking with employers and mapping the region’s competency-based workforce and economic needs to our program offerings and customizing as necessary.


Students in these programs will participate in a holistic learning program that strengthens their ability to apply the related knowledge, skills, and abilities required to successfully perform at a high level in life and on-the-job. In addition to Industry and Technical Competencies, the curriculum effectively addresses the Personal Effectiveness, Academic and Workplace Competencies (Tiers 1-3) or the DOL-ETA Competency Model Pyramid. Students will produce a "Success Blueprint" that includes a mission statement, S.M.A.R.T. goals, and a life-long personal improvement plan.
