The Dorchester County QuickJobs Training Center is an economic development hub for the area. Students can come onsite to train for jobs in their own community either through classes offered publicly or through contractual training with their employer. A college education is also within reach since academic credit courses can be offered at the center. You can apply these credits toward a certificate, diploma or degree. Community members can also enroll in personal enrichment classes for the pure pleasure of learning new and fun subjects. In collaboration with SC Works, Charleston County Adult Education and other community partners, the center offers a variety of other services and resources such as job fairs, training resources, tax preparation clinics, and financial management workshops to help students and participants achieve their goals and succeed. A Public Broadband Computer Center is available for use free of charge Monday through Saturday.
