BTC's mission is to train indivduals for jobs that are relevant to today's market. According to Director Valerie Njie, "Bidwell’s remarkable longevity can be attributed to our holistic approach of connecting the dots. We begin by working with industry to design training programs that are actually in demand in the local marketplace. We then surround students with highly qualified faculty and staff who possess years of experience and education. Once programs begin, Bidwell continues to work with a network of industry partners and advisory board members to ensure that training remains relevant and employment opportunities continue to exist."
