Training & Workforce
Our Commitment to Workforce
By training students of all ages to enter high-demand fields, Tyler is a major contributor to our local economy.
- In fiscal year 2017-18, Tyler contributed more than $300 million in income to the community.
- More than 95 percent of Tyler’s students remain in Virginia after they complete their education, with about 80 percent staying in the College service region after attending Tyler.
- For every $1.00 invested in John Tyler Community College in 2017-18, state and local taxpayers will receive a cumulative value of $8.70 and students will gain $6.40 in added income.
Training for High-Demand Career Fields
Through Tyler and the Community College Workforce Alliance, our many career training programs allow students to enter the workforce in two years or less with the skills that employers need.
Good for Business
We partner with local businesses to ensure that our facilities and curriculum are up-to-date to meet the needs of employers in our community.
My Tyler experience opened doors for me at work. Now they look to me as an asset.
Spring Semester to Begin Remotely
Due to the current spread of COVID-19 in our area, the college’s spring semester classes will begin remotely. Through January 29, classes scheduled to meet on-campus will be held through Zoom. The college’s student services offices will also continue to offer remote services on the weekdays during this timeframe. Very limited staff will be on campus, and students are encouraged to access services remotely. Students needing assistance may contact the Help Hub. Learn more.
