The WCA Regional Training Center is an Accredited Private Post-secondary educational institution registered with the Wyoming Department of Education. The facility is located in Casper, WY and specializes in providing industry-driven, short-duration career and technical training in the skilled trades, transportation, allied healthcare, energy, manufacturing and safety. WCARTC is owned and operated by the Wyoming Contractors Association (WCA), a non-profit trade association established in 1932.
In 1998, WCA members organized the Construction Careers Foundation (CCF), a 501 (c) (3) tax exempt organization, raised funds and built the training center to provide much-needed apprenticeship, technical and safety training to its member construction firms during the winter season. The original facility opened in February 2001. Between 2005 and 2008 the training center expanded and now includes drill pads and training rigs, an off-road CDL driving course and a 22,000 SQ FT classroom building.
The Wyoming Contractors Association Regional Training Center is dedicated to providing a safe, dependable, realistic training environment for its students and staff. In order to achieve this goal, the training center has implemented a comprehensive behavioral-based safety policy. Behavior-based safety involves all of the employees of WCARTC from the director to the custodial staff and also includes students attending training.
The high-intensity, short duration certificate training programs offered by WCARTC represent a significant value to those seeking employment in high demand industries. The significant value of certificate programs is that they offer practical credentials that can provide graduates with an appealing combination of rapid postsecondary achievement and portable skills and knowledge. Certificates enable graduates to find immediate work and position them for future academic success if they chose to build on their qualifications and skills at a later time.
