The growth and development of business and industry in Fort Dodge and the region has sparked a need for a qualified and skilled work force. Iowa Central continuously strives to meet the needs of business and industry. Part of that commitment is shown in the development of the East Campus. Iowa Central acquired what was formerly known as Smithway MotorExpress or Western Express facilities, and has established a Training Center. The emerging space and training needs of both Cargill and CJ BioAmerica fueled the need for training space, which also put Iowa Central on the fast track to get the facilities remodeled, but the goal is to have a center, and training, accessible to all business and industry in the region, as well as individuals looking to retool themselves.
