The Workforce Development Institute seeks to provide responsive, innovative, and quality training and education services for workforce development and state agencies within the Greater New Haven area by putting the needs of the customer first.

About the Workforce Development Institute

The Workforce Development Institute offers non-credit certificate training programs which provide new occupational skills to dislocated workers, mature workers, and those who need updated or additional workplace skills. These programs have been approved by local Workforce Investment Boards, and meet the criteria for inclusion on the CT Department of Labor Eligible Provider List for the Workforce Investment Act.  Many of these programs have also been approved by the Veterans Administration and the CT Department of Higher Education for G.I. Bill benefits. A certificate program may be taken in its entirety or as independent, selected courses. Programs are offered in modules, with rolling start dates to accommodate student needs. Classes are held in the evening and on weekends to accommodate the needs of working adults. These courses are open to the public.
