Continuing Ed/Workforce

Continuing Education & Workforce Development

South Carolina’s Technical College System was established in the 1960s to train citizens for jobs. While all academic programs at HGTC provide job training, there are a number of additional job training options for local companies, industrial prospects, and individuals who do not wish to enroll in college but need job training for immediate employment. Whether you want to learn new skills or enhance skills for a career, keep current in your field, get needed continuing education units (CEUs) to maintain your certification, or just want to learn for the pleasure of personal enrichment, we have something for you. HGTC also offers customized training for your business.
