Western Colorado Community College will soon launch six intensive, 16-week certificate programs as part of an initiative to re-train and employ military veterans, their spouses and individuals who are unemployed due to their employer moving operations abroad.

CMU has received a $2.5 million grant (TC-23838-12-60-A-8) from the U.S. Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration under the Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCT) program. The project is 100 percent financed by the USDOL.

The six programs are Process Systems-Electronics Technician, Process Systems-Control Systems Technician, Manufacturing Technology-CAD/CAM, Manufacturing Technology-Basic Welder, Technology Integration-Certified Network Technician and Technology Integration- Computer Technician.

WCCC will partner with the Mesa County Workforce Center, who also received a grant from the USDOL, and other community groups as part of the program.
