Training for Results

Frederick County Workforce Services (FCWS) used the Maryland Business Works Program to partner with American Computer Development, Inc., a manufacturing and design services company, to assist them in meeting their goals to create more efficient and effective business processes. The training also helped the company to meet its mission to innovate for tomorrow. Six employees were trained in various job-related and industry skills, including lean manufacturing, project management, human resources certification, and equipment operations and maintenance. Four of the six training participants received wage increases and all received industry skills that will lead to career advancement.
