Recognizing that a company’s workforce is its #1 priority, EMS is taking steps to ensure that workers in the Commonwealth are equipped with superior training and skills needed to compete in the global economy. EMS has aligned resources to ensure companies and individuals receive the assistance they need to be successful. We offer various resources including GED courses, cultural competency, social skills, organizational skills, personal development, higher education, and re-entry services.
Empowering apprentices through a registered apprenticeship model, combining on-the-job learning with related technical instruction. Apprentices are currently being trained in more than 25 occupations.
Encouraging Manufacturing Careers
Increasing manufacturing careers through an innovative work/study program. Students split their week between college courses and on-the-job training in a high-tech manufacturing operation. After 18 months, students receive an advanced manufacturing technician (AMT) certification and can begin work or continue college.

We have a full-time GED teacher on staff to help with your educational needs.
Providing Second Chances

Assistance includes housing, transportation, and substance abuse treatment. In addition, certain low-level felons can expunge their records once they have completed their sentences.
Equipping Offenders with Trade Skills
Offering apprenticeship programs for adult and juvenile offenders while incarcerated to give them nationally recognized journeyman credentials in skilled trades upon their release.
