Since our beginning in 1984 as Private Industry Council 5, Central Minnesota Jobs and Training Services Inc. (CMJTS) has been passionate about providing quality training and job placement services to our customers in central Minnesota. Throughout our 11-county region, job seekers—adults, youth, entry-level, career-changers, low-income, and dislocated workers—count on us for professional career guidance based on their individual circumstances, economic self-sufficiency needs, and local labor market demands. Businesses count on us for qualified workers to fill their jobs.

We are proud of the testimonials we have received over the years from our job-seeker and business customers:

    "The funding helped a lot, but more so, the support and guidance was the major thing."

    "I appreciated the support I received from the agency the structure, and the emotional and financial support. The end of my story is really just the beginning for me."

    "My training helped me get the job I wanted, a job I wasn't originally qualified for."

    "Our employees are successful, in no small part, because of the training coordinated by CMJTS."

We continue to focus on building positive relationships, partnerships, and collaborations that lead to innovative workforce development solutions.
