What Our Members Say...

The WTC has provided great training at a reasonable cost. This is a value to our company whether we are training 1 employee or many.The ability to help develop curriculum, assures our employees are getting the skill development we need to be competitive.

Arkansas Glass is a huge advocate of the WTC.  We use the Lean manufacturing and supervisory training series, and other training.  We can see a difference in our employees – we’ve always tried to offer them training, but we really see a positive change in their behavior when we teach them a new skill.  We also take advantage of grant money that is available.

.....Arkansas Glass Container Corporation

Southworth Products has been a long time member of the WTC and as members, we have reaped many benefits from its training opportunities.  Many of the training opportunities have allowed our employees to hone their skills and to learn new skills that have not only improved their job performance, but have increased their value as an employee as well.  We have also found that employee morale and job satisfaction have improved when we as a company are willing to invest our time and resources into training.  The WTC has been an invaluable tool in that process.
