Due to close its doors in the spring of 2018, the OIC Training Academy has been an affiliate of OIC of America for the last 42 years. Originally founded in Charleston, West Virginia by native Leon Sullivan.
At the height of the Civil rights movement, Rev. Sullivan founded OIC of America to help people help themselves and people around them through career training.
Over the last 35 years. OIC training Academy has played a very important role in the world of carer and workforce development, providing citizens of the Marion County and West Virginia plenty of opportunities to help build themselves a skill set which will last them a life time.
Giving them the confidence needed to achieve success in a variety of occupational fields.
From the very beginning of the OIC has focused on pinpointing career opportunities within the community, partnering with employers, and aligning its curriculum to provide its local citizens with real world opportunity for individual growth and creating a long-term career expansion that could last for generations. Whether it’s through industrial trades, administrative support training program or of the health and sciences, OIC has always been on the forefront when it comes to combating the lack of workplace development in the community. More importantly OIC has lead a well thought of mission to ‘help people help themselves’ which provides people with opportunity to overcome obstacles and to prosper through their own hard work and self-belief needed to succeed in career endeavours.
This is why it’s such a disappointment that this training facility has come to an end after so many successful years, strip the local youth of their unemployment status.
