MCTC joins a coalition of community partners serving as an Employee Assistance Firm to the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority. The MSFA has committed to turning this major construction project into “the people’s stadium.” According to a recent article in MinnPost, this partnership and the coalition of partners supporting the project will not only assist the MSFA in meeting its goals of achieving a workforce comprised of at least 32 percent minorities and 6 percent women, but will also put a system in place to meet the workforce needs for future construction projects in Minnesota.

MCTC’s division of Workforce Development, Continuing Education and Customized Training offers customized training services to businesses and organizations like Caribou Coffee, Cargill, Pizza Luce, Target, US Bank, Wells Fargo and more.
