Central Alabama Community College has entered into a memorandum of understanding with Dovetail Landing to strengthen workforce training, education and job placement for veterans in Dovetail Landing programs.

The two entities have committed to helping veterans by offering them extensive workforce training and educational programs to boost their qualifications. The college will use its industry knowledge, resources and connections to provide key training and career advice for veterans. Meanwhile, Dovetail Landing will promote the college as the top choice for these essential programs.

Jeff Lynn, CACC president, said the partnership shows the college’s dedication to veterans. “Together with Dovetail Landing, we aim to equip our veterans with the skills, credentials and chances they require for successful civilian careers.”

The agreement details a joint approach in which the organizations will determine the best programs, methods and venues for workforce training and education. They will also set up a structured method to pinpoint funding sources for the activities once plans are finalized. Instruction will take place at Dovetail Landing, the college and other future venues.

Dovetail Landing President Alana Centilli said the partnership with the college is a big step toward giving veterans top-notch, relevant training that sets them up for solid post-military careers. “We’re working toward a future where our veterans have the necessary skills and are recognized and valued in the job market.”

The college and Dovetail Landing will also team up with state and local organizations to drum up support for the programs, aiming for a well-rounded, community-supported method of helping veterans.

Rep. Ed Oliver, head of House Military and Veteran Affairs, said the collaboration is a noteworthy effort that highlights the shared duty to support veterans. “By merging education, training and job placement, we’re not only helping veterans but also enhancing our communities and sectors with their unique skills and backgrounds.”

CACC and Dovetail Landing will continue to prioritize serving veterans by boosting their qualifications, connecting them with jobs and thereby enhancing their lives and the broader workforce.
