Life Sciences & Biotech Middle Skills Workforce

This collaborative study confirms that six Middle Skills occupations are significant to the Life Sciences/Biotechnology sector, supporting more than 17,000 jobs currently and anticipating 4,700 job openings over the next five years.

I would suggest that any community college professional currently not using the Centers of Excellence are missing an excellent resource for making objective decisions on curriculum development and new programs."
