WTC's Computer-Aided Drafting & Design Program

DORS is excited to be a partner in Maryland's Skills2Compete initiative.  The goal of Skills2Compete is to increase the number of Marylanders who get education and training beyond high school in order to produce more skilled workers to meet the needs of employers with middle- and high-skills jobs. 

Through programs at its Workforce & Technology Center and throughout Maryland communities, DORS has long helped Marylanders with disabilities gain the education and training they need to get and keep these jobs.

Workforce & Technology Center

DORS Workforce & Technology Center (WTC) in northeast Baltimore offers innovative training programs that prepare people with disabilities to go to work with the skills needed for job success.  WTC offers a number of mid-skill occupational programs, including Automotive Mechanics, Computer-Aided Drafting & Design and Office Technology.

In order to meet the needs of specific employers and/or industries, WTC also designs a variety of customized/partnership programs with specific employers and post-secondary schools, such as bank teller, day care provider and nursing assistant programs.

Each WTC training program has a business advisory committee, which assures that programs meet employers' needs. Committee members provide advice on topics such as curriculum, employment outlook and current technology.

Throughout Maryland

DORS provides support and funding for people with disabilities to pursue post-secondary training in many fields at their local community colleges, including an innovative program for students with autism spectrum disorders at the Community Colleges of Baltimore County.  DORS can also help eligible Marylanders train for new mid-skill careers at private technical schools and through apprenticeship programs.
