Department of Workforce Innovation


Motlow’s Workforce Innovation department provides technical skills training, continuing education, and professional development programming.

Our Workforce Innovation initiatives strategically serve Motlow’s southern middle Tennessee counties by providing individuals and the workforce of local business and industry with access to the high-demand training and skills required of workforce professionals in this 21st century economy.  

As a service to the residents within our region we provide multiple open-enrollment training, professional development and personal interest courses at each of our campus locations. 

To support local business, industry and government we provide customized workforce training programs to align with employer requests.

As a community college we are also able to issue Continuing Educational Units, CEU, “certificates of completion” to our workforce program participants.


The Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is awarded upon successful completion of certain training courses or activities. One CEU is defined as “ten contact hours of participation in an organized continuing education experience under responsible sponsorship, capable direction, and qualified instruction.”

To meet conditions for satisfactory completion, participants must:

  1. Be properly registered and pay all fees
  2. Attend a minimum of 75 percent of scheduled classes
  3. Achieve a “satisfactory” rating from the instructor and receive a certificate


In addition to providing continuing education, open-enrollment training courses, and delivering workforce training via business and industry contracts, Motlow’s Workforce division manages all Campus Room Reservations.

Specifically, this unit administers the “Use of Campus Property and Facilities Reservation” by ensuring Policy & Procedure No 3:02:02:00 is adhered to, and utilizing the “Facilities Request / Student Event / Visiting Speaker” electronic form.  We serve as the Motlow State point of contact to off-campus individual or group requests, including the negotiation of room rental charges. 

Requests are submitted, reviewed, and approved through Motlow’s online Room Reservations system.  The Room Reservations form can be found on our website. Select Workforce Development – Room Reservations web page or click here: Submit a Room Reservations


The Workforce Innovation division is open Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. and is located on the 2nd floor in the Marcum Technology Center.   

The phone contact is 931-393-1760 or email workforce@mscc.edu.
