Workforce Professional Development

EDSI offers customized, responsive, action-oriented training and technical assistance to local workforce programs around the country. National workforce organizations observe that, even in a field where worker training is paramount, state and local Workforce Development Boards (WDBs) and workforce agencies often lack the capacity to train new and incumbent staff in the best methods of doing their jobs.

EDSI is here to help, with a proven menu of training offerings built toward giving staff the opportunity to apply what they learn through in-class practice and real-world application of the tools we teach. Offering more than the stock two-hour workshops provided by many high-cost national presenters; we build a customized curriculum that focuses on strengthening your team and guiding them to actively employ training content to analyze situations, evaluate options and create new and unique solutions to address your professional challenges and situations.

A Process That Works

Identify: Identify your specific training needs by working with your leadership team and staff

Incorporate: Incorporate your local or state policies and procedures into a customized curriculum designed specifically to address your needs and reinforce your policies 

Deliver: Deliver the training with only highly-experienced trainers, many of whom are industry veterans 

EDSI's case management and career counselor trainings were more than we could have hoped for. Delivered in an active, energetic fashion, the trainings demanded more of our staff than any previous training – This wasn't just a set of lectures, but a dynamic process that required staff to prove mastery of challenging subject matter. EDSI worked closely with our leadership team to design and customize the curriculum to our needs, providing excellent content and superb delivery of multi-day trainings for over 900 staff of our WorkOne System.Marie Mackintosh, Director of Education and Training - Indiana Department of Workforce Development

The Tooling and Manufacturing Association would strongly suggest EDSI be selected for any workforce related initiative with the goal of developing a structured pipeline of employee candidates or improving the productivity of incumbent employees.
