Northeast Transportation Workforce Center
The Northeast Transportation Workforce Center (NETWC) is based at the University of Vermont Transportation Research Center (UVM TRC) in collaboration with The Center for Advanced Infrastructure & Transportation (CAIT). The Center serves 11 states and the District of Columbia. NETWC Stakeholders include multiple partners from Education, Labor and Transportation agencies and institutions across all modes and disciplines in 11 states and the District of Columbia. The Northeast Transportation Workforce Center (NETWC) is organized to make a significant contribution to ensuring the U.S. surface transportation system has a workforce that is resilient, skilled, efficient and effective in designing, operating, building and maintaining a 21st century transportation system that best supports the region and country’s social and economic vitality. NETWC builds strategic partnerships and engages regional and national stakeholders to develop a skilled and career-ready transportation workforce throughout the region.
The NETWC was formed through an FHWA grant to compliment and create extended opportunities in transportation workforce development. NETWC is building a network that connects resources, promising practices, and, most importantly, innovative thinkers already engaged in transportation workforce development. The regional network supports and is supported by a National Network for the Transportation Workforce; five centers created together to work locally regionally and nationally, funded by grants through FHWA.
National Network for Transportation Workforce (NNTW)
FHWA established five Regional Transportation Workforce Centers that work together to provide a more strategic and efficient approach to transportation workforce development. The Centers will act together to facilitate national partnerships with key public and private organizations throughout the transportation, education, labor, and workforce investment communities to identify and promote effective transportation workforce activities and programs.
