As The Natural State, Arkansas offers its visitors a unique depth of scenic wonders and recreational opportunities. But that’s only half the picture. It also offers its working people a chance for their careers to soar through a variety of educational and training opportunities.

Programs among government, community, education, and industry leaders provide the chance for them to benefit from cooperative education through many colleges and universities in Arkansas; vocational education programs in more than 300 schools statewide, including 23 vo-tech schools; and the Arkansas Industry Training Program. This program offers specialized, custom-designed employment training before and during work for your employees. Scholarships, grants, and a substantial, state-assisted education enhancement program fill out the picture.

Technical and vocational studies are conducted in the labs and on the job. Special programs emphasize medicine, economics, engineering, and robotics. They’re giving Arkansas employers a labor pool with some of the most capable, trained, educated, and motivated people available anywhere.

So you can easily understand why it’s to your advantage to get the whole picture.

The best way to do that is to see for yourself. Call 1-800-NATURAL for a free Arkansas Vacation Planning Kit for The Natural State.
