Workforce Development & Lifelong Learning is the right spot on your journey to earn more, grow your career, build your business with trained employees, or just have a more interesting life.  We are the branch of the College that serves adults building their career and families, youth ages 9 – 17, students wanting a core life education or preparing to move onto a baccalaureate degree, or those remaining vibrant through post employment.  In other words, just in time learning…what you desire to learn, when you desire to learn.

Workforce Development works with area employers to develop solutions for performance gaps on the job. We upskill individual employees or train a group.  Apprenticeship, College Tuition Reimbursement, Education Partnership Program, Deferred Payment and on the job training are all possible.

Transforming lives through affordable education.


As a premier community college, Pima Community College (PCC) will be a catalyst for personal transformation, economic growth, and cultural prosperity that enriches our diverse community.

"Workforce development is considered a part of economic development, but that realization is sometimes lost on the community college sector even though it’s one of the few places where the two can truly operate in unison."
Ian Roark, Vice Chancellor of Workforce Development & Innovation
