Technical College Graduates are Wisconsin’s Essential Workforce
Delivering health care professionals, first responders and essential workforce
Wisconsin's 16 technical colleges adapted operations to assure student success and a steady flow of skilled health care graduates, first responders and essential workers. The colleges efficiently transferred invaluable equipment and supplies to health care facilities and first responders. And have opened our doors in support of public health agencies and first responders.
