Polk State College Gets Grant for Job Training Programs

The U.S. Department of Labor has awarded a $2.9 million Community-Based Job Training Grant to Polk State College to implement their Engineering Technology and Advanced Manufacturing (ETAM) initiative. Through a partnership of three colleges and the Employ Florida Banner Center for Manufacturing, the initiative will increase program capacity, create cutting-edge curricula and provide training for nearly 800 unemployed workers, dislocated workers, and incumbent workers who need training to improve their skills to remain employed and remain competitive in the marketplace.
