Workforce Development & Training

The Workforce Development office is focused on enhancing the lives of current and future employees within the communities that we are located. The Workforce Development team strives to offer world-class training through numerous non-credit classes designed to meet  business and industry needs now and into the future.

Short-term Workforce Training classes are designed to enhance personal or professional growth and skills that can be offered during the day, at night, weekends, or even online. Courses can be conducted on all four of the ASU-Beebe campuses in Beebe, Heber Springs, Little Rock Air Force Base, and Searcy. Browse our program listing or contact us for more information.

Customized Development & Training

ASU-Beebe delivers high-quality customized training designed to improve the performance and efficiency of your company. Workforce staff will work with your company to design training programs to meet the specific needs of your industry. Training can be conducted at one of our many campus locations or at your place of business based on your needs and schedule. Participants in workforce education classes/trainings may earn continuing education units (CEUs). One CEU represents ten contact hours of participation under qualified instruction. A transcript of work will be permanently filed at the college and will be readily available for your reference needs. Contact the office of Workforce and Community Development at 501.207.6249 for more information.

At our ASU campus in Heber, we offer an apprenticeship program for both Plumbing and Electrical skills. The offered courses are taught by instructors with years of combined experience in the field and in the classroom. Classes are designed to provide the type of instruction that will make any student knowledgeable and proficient for the tasks that are required out in the field. Any student interested in becoming a certified electrician or plumber need only select the links provided to learn more about these programs.
