Permian Basin


Andrews County is a member of the Texas Workforce Commission’s Permian Basin Local Workforce Development Region. Therefore, we have unlimited access to various training programs and services offered by the TWC’s local workforce centers. In addition, we have access and support from WorkInTexas.com, which is Texas’ most comprehensive online job resource that helps employers find workers and job seekers find jobs. Many of our employers offer On-the-Job and Apprenticeship Training.
