Blinn College announces new workforce training programs

The Texas Workforce Commission has awarded Blinn College a $195,000 Building and Construction Trades Grant to establish new plumbing and carpentry programs at the RELLIS Campus.

Demand for both programs continues to grow locally and is what prompted Blinn to offer these courses. Blinn expects to begin both programs in June 2017.

Blinn’s plumbing and carpentry programs are designed following National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) curriculum, meaning they are nationally recognized by industry professionals.

Blinn is currently accepting applications for plumbing and carpentry instructors. Both jobs are posted on the Blinn website at https://employment.blinn.edu, and require at least three years of professional experience. Plumbing instructors must be licensed journeyman or master plumbers.
