Center for Excellence in Workplace Education (CEWE)

The Center for Excellence in Workplace Education (CEWE) is a unique workforce delivery mechanism for the Northern Panhandle formed through a partnership with West Virginia Northern and local manufacturing companies. CEWE provides tri-state area companies with customized, flexible training programs and services.  At your site or ours, CEWE offers training designed just for you, just when you need it.  And, with advanced distance learning technology, we can also offer training just about anywhere. 

No two organizations are alike.  Your needs determine the style, method and setting of our training.  CEWE delivers training in many different ways, including:

  • Instructor-led classroom training, at your site or at one of ours.
  • Computer-based, multimedia training
  • Individualized, one-on-one training
  • Distance learning, through teleconferencing, multimedia or the Internet
  • Facilitated team training

CEWE has access to many capable skills trades and professional development trainers with an average of 20-plus years of experience.  It has access to the many resources and experiences of an educational institution that has been providing practical instruction to people of this region for dozens of years.  In addition, new, future-reaching training technologies are constantly being developed.  These evolving resources, combined with a unique, customer-focused approach to training, has created a synergy that enables us to provide a positive, dynamic training resource to your company and your workforce.
