The Office of Continuing Education and Workforce Development (OCEWD) is part of Leeward Community College's (CC) educational mission to enhance the quality of life and strengthen economic stability and growth by providing life-long development and personal enrichment. OCEWD provides a variety of continuing education programs, public service and cultural programs.
Programs support human resource and economic development, job training, and classes for small and large businesses, and aspiring entrepreneurs. OCEWD serves people whose educational goals do not require college credit.
Non-Credit and Continuing Education Program
The fee-based, non-credit program offers short- and long-term training opportunities especially designed to meet the needs and interests of the community and industry. The non-credit program offers activities for persons of all ages and interests.
Short-term, customized training meets the needs of business and industry. Flexible, convenient and self-supporting, these programs provide technical skills for the growing number of occupations that require more than the basics but do not require a degree.
OCEWD strives for constant development of new approaches and designs for learning. The long-range concerns and needs of industry, business, labor and consumers challenge Leeward CC to provide citizens and employees with an opportunity to learn new skills and upgrade present skills.
OCEWD works closely with members of civic, business, community trade associations, and other organizations. These partnerships assure that the communities' needs are met, that the college is taking full advantage of the talents of the community, and that the College's resources are used and accessible.
OCEWD also works closely with other governmental and private non-profit agencies that provide services to the community. Education services of the College are carefully coordinated with education and training services provided by other agencies.
Training and Consultation
Faculty and staff of the College are available to groups and organizations to provide training and consultation in a variety of specialized subject areas. OCEWD also works closely with local professional or special-interest groups in order to offer quality workshops and conferences to the community on numerous topics.
