Amazon selects TCC as education partner for its Career Choice program

Amazon has selected Tallahassee Community College as an education partner for its Career Choice program, ahead of the company’s anticipated plans to launch Tallahassee’s new fulfillment center in 2023.

Through TCC’s partnership with the multinational e-commerce company, the college will provide Amazon’s hourly employees with training programs that include HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning), machining and welding. 

“The whole idea of partnering with a global effort is huge,” TCC Vice President of Workforce Innovation Kimberly Moore told the Tallahassee Democrat Thursday. “It’s a wonderful opportunity for us to continue our mission of not only promoting our education platform but also economic and workforce development.”

While training programs like HVAC and machining already exist on TCC’s campus, specific additions such as Introduction to Welding will be made under the Career Choice partnership. All the offerings will be related to construction and manufacturing, with pre-paid full tuition provided by Amazon under its program. 

Amazon’s Career Choice program — an educational benefit that gives the company’s employees the opportunity to learn new skills for career success — chooses education partners like TCC that focus on helping employees through their education while also assisting them with job placements.
