With the unemployment rate in Greene County at less than 2% and employers citing a lack of skilled workers as the most significant barrier to expanding employment, Ozarks Technical Community College will offer short-term training courses this summer. The training sessions in welding, heating and air (HVAC), masonry and construction range in length from six weeks to just two days.
All courses will be offered at the OTC Springfield Campus, except construction which will be offered in Springfield and at OTC Table Rock.
