COLLEGE STATION - TEEX CEO Gary Sera made the following announcement at a press conference held today (12/13/16):

"The Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service, also known as TEEX, is delighted to be partnering with Blinn College to continue to provide quality workforce development training to the Brazos County.

Many know TEEX as a premiere Fire Training facility. We also train in law enforcement, infrastructure support, therapeutics manufacturing, occupational safety, cybersecurity and homeland security.

Now, this partnership with Blinn College will give us the opportunity to further expand our training locally in the areas of telecomm line installation, welding and CNC tool operations.

Each year, TEEX attracts over 27,000 students to Brazos County for training in nearly 1,500 classes with approximately 4,500 of those being residents of this county.

We currently offer over 110 different courses to 2,300 students at the RELLIS campus, and we look forward to increasing our offerings through our partnership with Blinn.

I see this as a time of economic growth in the Brazos County and am happy to see RELLIS campus growing at the same time to help meet the areas’ expanding needs.

Our next steps are to work with Blinn and the Brazos County industrial sector to identify those skills most needed by our local workforce."
