Seminole State College of Florida will share in a $10 million federal grant that will be used to provide training and education for the construction industry in Florida.
The grant, part of the Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) program, will partner four Florida College System institutions, with Miami Dade College Kendall Campus taking the lead. The partnership also includes Polk State College and Santa Fe College. Seminole State will receive nearly $2 million.
Leaders and employers in the industry will help with the training and advising related to the program and with hiring certified workers, according to the U.S. Department of Labor.
The program is expected to launch between fall 2015 and spring 2016 with between 500 and 600 students participating each year.
