On The Road: Tri-C Mobile Training Unit Featured by The New York Times
Workforce program highlighted for innovative approach to closing skills gap
A story in the Sunday edition of The New York Times showcased how Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) uses a classroom on wheels to deliver workforce training programs to area companies.
The article notes the innovative approach embraced by Tri-C and other community colleges to meet the needs of employers and close the skills gap. The College debuted its mobile unit two years ago. It includes an area for hands-on training as well as classroom space for 10 students.
“The mission of community colleges is all about access to skills training, and we are seeing more and more colleges adopting the mobile technology and buying the equipment to do it because they see it has such an impact,” said Darlene Miller, executive director of the National Council for Workforce Education.
Demand for Tri-C’s mobile unit already has it booked for 47 weeks this year. The New York Times story focused on training offered at Oatey, a Cleveland-based plumbing manufacturer and distributor.
The story — which appears in the newspaper’s Feb. 24 edition — is also available online.
