Since 2001, the CTTC has focused on workforce and educational development for underprivileged students and adults in order for them to work toward and ultimately achieve their educational and employment goals in today's high-tech world. The CTTC serves as an Illinois WorkNet portal that provides a link for community residents to free online training, resources and workshops that promote workforce training and community empowerment.
The CTTC Lab is further utilized by many Urban League programs including: the DCFS WASSUP Program, GAP, 21st Century, Youth Build Program, and Freedom School. The League remains dedicated to being part of a larger network of workforce professionals committed to raising the economic standards, health and technology education level of the Springfield community.
The Springfield Urban League would like to expand the CTTC lab's training opportunities. The lab is available for rent by individuals, agencies and associations, that provide or require computer based certification testing as well as those groups that conduct hands-on software training. To date, the lab has provided access to the digital world for community members seeking software training and web access, Child Development Associate credentialing, Illinois Food Handlers Training and Certification, and the Illinois Department of Human Services conducting software testing. If you are interested in additional information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
