About the Mobile Career Lab

The Mobile Career Lab is a 13-station state of the art fully accessible computer lab. The lab offers a full array of services and has a private interview area as well as the option of dividing the classroom area into two separate rooms. The instructor workstation is connected to a 42” Plasma TV with Smart Board Overlay which adds Interactive Whiteboard capabilities for presentations and training.

The lab operates under generator-driven power or through a shore line connection. Internet connection is via satellite. Printer, scanner, and copy services are available. DVD and VCR units are attached to the large screen Plasma TV and to the smaller TV located within the private interview area.

A fully accessible ADA workstation with movable table and auxiliary equipment is available adjacent to the Wheelchair Lift.

The lab provides workforce solutions for businesses and individuals. Businesses may use the mobile lab for recruiting, pre-employment screening, interviewing and training. Individuals will be served through various job search/career development activities such as on-line job search, resume and cover letter development, on-line tutorials and individual assessments and exploration of training eligibility and options.
