Labor Market Information Training and Support for Workforce Staff

Arizona Commerce Authority
Start Date: May 2013 — End Date: Jun 2015

This project provided training and support to the Arizona Commerce Authority (ACA), its workforce areas, and relevant partners as they seek to increasingly utilize labor market information to guide workforce development strategy and enhance their service offerings to firms and jobseekers.  C2ER accomplished this by working with ACA to develop highly relevant curriculum on the use and interpretation of labor market information, recognizing the unique needs of the workforce areas.  This training was delivered by C2ER staff on a quarterly basis in various Arizona locations, and supplemented by periodic webinars.
