Three W.Va. CTCs Awarded Workforce Training Funding


Three West Virginia community and technical colleges have been awarded more than $9 million in federal funding for a workforce training initiative.

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin and Rep. Nick Rahall announced the grant on Monday in a news release. The funding is part of a nationwide effort to assist military members and veterans.

The initiative will be led by Mountwest Community and Technical College, in collaboration with Blue Ridge Community and Technical College in Martinsburg and Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College in Shamrock.

The funding will be used to hire or train new instructors to offer in-demand courses and certifications, develop online learning and other programs.
