Southwest Training Services, Inc.


Southwest Training Services’ mission is to help employers and job seekers make informed employment and training choices. They serve Washington and Greene counties in Southwestern Pennsylvania.

Their staff is very knowledgeable about the local labor market, with an in-depth understanding of both sides of the employment equation.

On the supply-side, Southwest helps job seekers become attached, or reattached, to the workforce through education, training and job placement services. On the demand-side, the service helps employers attract and retain competent workers through recruitment, screening and training assistance.

For employers, Southwest offers applicant assessment services, information about the Rapid Response program for employers anticipating layoffs and on-the-job training funds. The service can also help employers access a range of state and federal tax credit and incentive programs.

If you are looking for work, Southwest offers academic testing and remediation, GED classes, paid on-the-job training and job development and placement services.

Even a brief visit to their website offers a comprehensive look at the resources available to employers and job-seekers in southwestern Pennsylvania.
