The Portland Metropolitan Workforce Training Center (PMWTC) is located in urban northeast Portland and is part of PCC’s Extended Learning Campus. Opened in 1998, our primary program is called the Steps to Success, an employment and training program designed to help people receiving public assistance, develop their skills, and position them to be competitive for family wage jobs. Some PCC Community Education classes are also offered at PMWTC.

The Portland Metropolitan Workforce Training Center hosts job fairs almost every Friday (called "Employment Marketplace") that feature local companies such as Fred Meyer, Providence, Columbia Sportswear, and American Red Cross. For more information and this week's featured employers, visit the PMWTC Employment MarketPlace website.
