In August, the first students began vocational training at the new Wind River Job Corps Center. “This first of its kind in Wyoming, the Wind River Job Corps Center is a fantastic program to ensure that the citizens of Wyoming have the skills and training they need to be leaders in tomorrow’s workforce,” Senator Mike Enzi said. “A project like this is not any one person’s doing, but a team effort from a lot of folks who did the ground work so this project could move forward. The work done by the city, county, tribal and state governments, and federal agencies to bring this Job Corps Center to the Wind River area will help support Wyoming’s communities and economy for decades to come.”

The Wind River Job Corps center boasts a first-of-its-kind petroleum technician training program, designed in consultation with the local business community, to prepare students for careers in Wyoming’s energy industry. The center also offers training in accounting, building and construction technology, carpentry, electrical, heavy construction equipment mechanics, equipment operations, heavy truck driving, office administration and welding. When at full capacity, the center will house and train 300 students and employ more than 100 staff.
