    According to the Campaign for a Working Connecticut, middle-skill

    jobs - which require more than a high school education but less

    than a four-year degree - currently make up the largest segment of

    jobs in the U.S. economy and will continue to do so for years to

    come. In Connecticut, only 37 percent of the workforce presently

    has the skills needed for the 47 percent of middle-skill job

    openings. Short term training certificates are a great means of

    closing this gap and launching your new career!
