What is the ACCS Innovation Center?

The ACCS Innovation Center, a division of the Alabama Community College System, is dedicated to empowering individuals and enhancing the economic vitality of Alabama by providing innovative and accessible training programs that bridge the skills gap and prepare Alabamians for in-demand careers. By bringing together community colleges, businesses, and community partners, we create Skills for Success courses that are built by Alabamians for Alabamians. Our goal is to provide rapid, industry-recognized non-credit training in high-demand career fields to build a skilled workforce for the state.

The training is offered at no cost, thanks to legislative appropriations that allow for the development and deployment of training statewide. A unique feature of Skills for Success training is how quickly it can be completed. Part of the training is offered online, with self-paced interactive learning. Upon completing the online portion of the course, students then complete hands-on training with qualified instructors at any of the 24 community colleges around the state. The in-person labs simulate real work experience and test students for mastery of skills.

Participants who complete training also earn a certificate of completion from the local Community College, which signals to businesses that the individual has mastered the skills taught in the program and is immediately ready for employment. Once the curriculum for each program is created by the Innovation Center and tested at each pilot college, it can be replicated by other colleges in other parts of the state rapidly.
