As a connecting partner, the Workforce Training Solutions department inventories all available intellectual and physical resources of the University, and offers a performance consulting service to companies in search of training, continuing education, or custom consulting. Our clients turn to us for training solutions and University services that serve to fit strategic business models.  We believe in measurable and obtainable goals, and actively work with our clients, instructors, and the University to produce results.

  • Our instructors are expert professionals that combine the academic rigor and refinement of a college professor with real-world experience. We believe that receiving the best education starts with the best staff and instructors.
  • We have experience with public sector education initiatives and funding sources.
  • The University of Akron has five locations across the Northeast Ohio region. We have an unsurpassed regional footprint, making Workforce Training Solutions not only a state leader in professional development and continuing education, but also a local resource for many of Ohio’s prominent industries and communities.
