The Linn-Benton Community College Foundation has received the largest single private gift in the 45-year history of the college from an anonymous donor.
The setting was Gateway Technical College, one of the many educational institutions helping to deliver workers into the workforce as quickly and competently as possible. The meeting was convened by the National Coalition of Certification Centers (NC3), and organizations of manufacturers and community colleges focused on delivering qualified workers with portable skills certification.
The N.C. Community College System will consolidate more than 80 curriculums into 32 in what system President Scott Ralls calls “the most sweeping curriculum improvement project in the history of the North Carolina Community College System.”
The Manufacturing Institute has partnered with the National Coalition of Certification Centers (NC3) to help address the needs of employers in manufacturing and the need for robust industry partnerships with educational institutions to promote the use of certifications.
