The Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development rolled out the Career Coaches program in January. Three mobile units were purchased with funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and serve each division of the state (East, Middle and West). The mobile units are set up as computer lab classrooms, each having 10 workstations that are equipped with a laptop with high-speed Internet connection. At one end of the coach is the instructor’s workstation that is connected to a 42″ flat-screen TV with SmartBoard® overlay and a DVD/CD player. The coaches are equipped with a
wheelchair lift, and the workstations are ADA compliant.
