The healthcare workforce population in the Inland Empire accounts for approximately 8% of the total workforce, employing more than 115,000 people.
It is projected that from 2012 through 2017 the Inland Empire's healthcare sector will grow by nearly 14%, resulting in an increase of 16,600 jobs. Workforce shortages due to new job creation and retirements will accelerate the training needs in this sector. Employers must be prepared to support training needs in order to meet the demand that new job skills will require.
The Workforce Training Institute is responding to this demand by partnering with select hospitals and medical facilities to fill the healthcare training gap with industry specific solutions.
