GOOD NEWS: MC receives over $100,000 in grant funds GOOD NEWS: MC receives over $100,000 in grant funds MIDLANDOn Oct. 27, the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board notified Midland College officials that the colleges Transportation Training (truck driving) program will receive $166,423 through the Texas Reskilling and Upskilling Education (TRUE) Institutional Capacity Grant Program. The program is funded by the Governors Emergency Education Relief (GEER) Fund. We will use these funds to purchase two trailers and a forklift and to develop new curriculum for truck driving, Jennifer Myers, MC associate vice president of Workforce, said. With the demand for competent truck drivers increasing, Midland Colleges current capacity for teaching is limited due to available equipment. The grant will enable us to expand our capacity and develop curriculum that incorporates additional safety training with truck driving skills for both experienced and novice truck drivers. MCs Transportation Training classes are composed of 200 hours, combining classroom and hands-on training. Upon successful completion of the program, students receive Class A Commercial Drivers Licenses (CDL) with the option to obtain endorsements in Hazmat, Doubles, Triples and Tankers. As has been reported by local and national media, the current shortage of truck drivers is a big part of the United States supply chain problems. The U.S. trucking industry is short 80,000 drivers, an all-time high for the industry, according to the American Trucking Association. Truck drivers move 71 percent of the US economys goods, making truck driving one of the ten largest industries in America. Regionally, more truck drivers are also needed in the Permian Basin to help meet transportation demands associated with increased oil and gas activity. In keeping with its mission of providing in-demand jobs for West Texas citizens, Midland College is helping to supply the local economy with professional truck drivers and provide training in a high-demand, competitive wage profession for Permian Basin residents.
