(Bradenton, FL—April 20, 2022) Manatee Technical College has been awarded an additional $550,000 to fund short-term training for workers impacted by the pandemic. The Rapid Credentialing training will be at little to no out-of-pocket cost to students. The training is being funded by the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief Fund under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
Global Logistics and Supply Chain Management is a new program; it takes 6 months to complete and starts on May 16. Phlebotomy takes less than six weeks to complete and starts on May 17. CDL truck driver training has rolling start dates. Completers earn certifications and receive help with job placement.
“We are so pleased the Governor approved MTC for additional funding to be able to start some new programs and offer scholarships to students,” said director Valerie Viands, EdD.
