The Workforce College provides training opportunities to the citizens of Jones, Covington, Smith, Wayne, Jasper, Green, Clarke and Perry Counties. The training is conducted in accordance with the Workforce Education Project Policies as developed by the Mississippi Community College Board.

Financial assistance for companies from the MCCB, grants and Workforce Investment Act (WIOA) funds are available for some services and classes. Professional and technical assistance is often available from state resource pools.
