Permian Basin

Andrews County is a member of the Texas Workforce Commission's Permian Basin Local Workforce Development Region. Therefore, we have unlimited access to various training programs and services offered by the TWC's local workforce centers. As well as, access and support from WorkInTexas.com, which is Texas' most comprehensive online job resource that helps employers find workers and job seekers find jobs. Many of our employers offer On-the-Job and Apprenticeship Training.

More importantly, The Andrews Business & Technology Center held its Grand Opening on January 5, 2006. This highly advanced training center is intent on meeting the growing needs of both the local workforce and providing post-secondary educational opportunities.
