Continuing Workforce Education

Florida Statute 1004.02 defines continuing workforce education.

"Continuing workforce education" means instruction that does not result in a technical certificate, diploma, associate in applied science degree, or associate in science degree. Continuing workforce education is for:

  1. Individuals who are required to have training for licensure renewal or certification renewal by a regulatory agency or credentialing body;
  2. New or expanding businesses as described in chapter 288;
  3. Business, industry, and government agencies whose products or services are changing so that retraining of employees is necessary or whose employees need training in specific skills to increase efficiency and productivity; or
  4. Individuals who are enhancing occupational skills necessary to maintain current employment, to cross train, or to upgrade employment.

During fiscal year 2001-2002 Florida’s network of community colleges provided training to 186,395 employees. At the local level continuing workforce education may also be referred to as corporate training or customized training.
