Skills Training Through Certified Learning Platforms

Certified Learning Platforms (CLPs) is a skills training program that focuses on teaching people the kind of basic, advanced and specialized work skills that are in demand by community employers. Graduates of our programs receive Dunwoody Custom Training-Opportunity Partners joint certificates of completion. Graduates of the REDI Retail program receive a Walgreens certificate.

All of our programs are designed around existing community job positions and employer needs that are researched and developed into course curriculum. Collaborating with Dunwoody’s Custom Training Department ensures that students develop professional-level skill sets that help them find and secure jobs. Collaborating with Dunwoody’s Workforce Training & College of Continuing Education ensures that students have every opportunity to develop professional-level skill sets that help them find jobs.

For work-ready individuals referred through VRS, graduates are eligible for a one-time, 45-day free job placement service. Graduates also have the option of becoming enrolled in an Extended Employment Program for long-term job support.
