The Division of Business, Public Safety, and Technology at South Texas College (STC) received a grant from the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) for $122,544.
The grant will benefit students by offering comprehensive, academic, and technical programs as well as high demand occupation training that will lead to employment opportunities for students.
Funding will support the college’s efforts in conducting an eight-week training program for students. The program will cover basic maintenance of electrical, heating, ventilation and air conditioning, and refrigeration (HVAC&R) and construction systems.
“The construction industry is in dire need for well-educated and trained individuals to help them meet the demands of a booming economy,” says Mario Reyna, Dean of Business. “This grant will promote the industry to the community and recruit interested individuals in three areas – electricians, HVAC and construction management. These three technical professions will support the industry to continue the rapid expansion that will continue into the foreseeable future.”
