Career Technology and Higher Education
Business & Industry Training
The Oklahoma CareerTech System is acknowledged as one of the top systems in the nation. CareerTech is a key ingredient in attracting industry to Oklahoma through its Training for Industry Program (TIP). The Chamber supports enhancement of CareerTech programming and ongoing funding to assure that the training needs for new and existing industry are being met.
Career Readiness & Certification
The Chamber believes Oklahoma needs more of our workforce to have post-secondary education targeted toward the skills that are in demand and meet industry needs. We support the creation of industry-recognized credentials training programs as funding is available.
Oklahoma Military Connection
Oklahoma will continue to see a high number of military veterans re-enter the workforce. CareerTech and higher education are both positioned to provide fast-track certification and job placement for veterans who need help transitioning their skills to the job market. We support outreach programs for returning military personnel as funding is available.
