PLENTIFUL LABOR POOL & WORKFORCE TRAINING/EDUCATION

Our site provides access to a highly trained, young vibrant workforce. Lewis County is an Open Market allowing the employer to hire the best available, and not be constrained to pre-selected employees based on seniority or tenure. The WorkSource Training program (through Washington State Employment Security Department) over-recruits and trains more candidates than needed which means you can choose from cream of the crop. You don’t pay to train, Washington State covers all costs until hired.

These hyperlinks will provide you with more information about Centralia College, the oldest continuously operating community college in the state of Washington with over 10,000 in enrollment, and local community education focus on Robotics and STEM.

There are also customized worker training grants and interest-free loans available.
