Does your company need financial assistance for workforce training?

Training & Development Solutions is your local administrator of Missouri One Start Training funds. We can work with your business to secure these funds to transform your new or existing workforce! Working with TDS allows for consolidated training throughout our region saving time and money for your company.

TDS recently relocated to the Joplin Advanced Training and Technology Center, a partnership with the Joplin Chamber of Commerce, City of Joplin and Crowder College. The purpose of the Joplin ATTC is to provide career training in high demand fields, so it made sense to move TDS to a central location to transform into more of a manufacturing hub to service our companies needs more efficiently.

Currently, the TDS in revamping its training programs and would encourage your input as to what training your business would desire offered. You may contact the TDS office at 417.680.3202 or for more information.
