CentralAlabama Partnership for Training and Employment (CAPTE)

The Community Services and Workforce Development Department is the administrator of the Central Alabama Partnership for Training and Employment (CAPTE). CAPTE is a partnership of several organizations all focused on providing employment assistance, training assistance, and job opportunities for those that need help in the six-county Central Alabama region: Blount, Chilton, Jefferson, Shelby,St. Clair and Walker Counties.

CAPTE focuses on helping the following job seekers of all ages, but primarily those who fall in the following categories:

* Adults -(ages 18 and older) who need additional training to become gainfully employed or obtain better paying jobs.

* Youth - (ages 16-24) who may have dropped out of school and need help getting started in a career or secure employment paying a living wage.

* Dislocated workers - (laid off or downsized workers) that need additional skills to qualify for other jobs. CAPTE works with those individuals to provide that additional training.

For more information on how CAPTE can help you call or visit us in person at the one of our four locations. Office hours are Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
