New Job Training Program

Frederick County Workforce Services (FCWS) has launched a new job training program called The Edge, a two-week course designed to give local job candidates a competitive edge in the labor market. The program was developed by FCWS staff in response to direct feedback from Frederick area businesses about what skills and qualifications are most desirable and in demand. Topics to be covered include communication and writing, reading and analyzing data, workplace math skills and more. The first class will commence on July 26. Employers seeking candidates for open positions may consider interviewing a graduate of The Edge program by contacting Michelle Day at (301) 600-1867.
