The Texas Engineering Extension Service has received a $367,270 grant from the Texas Workforce Commission. The Skills Development Fund grant will benefit the Texas health care workforce, with the goal of creating 422 new jobs and upgrading the skills of 1,470 workers.
On Feb. 9, TWC Commissioner T. P. O’Mahoney presented TEEX with a large-size “check” representing the grant funds at a ceremony in the John B. Connally Building in College Station.
This is the fourth Skills Development Fund grant TEEX has received for health care training in partnership with m-3 The Healthcare Learning Company, and brings the total funding to over $1.1 million, according to TEEX associate director Bob Prock. More than 3,600 students have been trained in the previous programs. Prock and Jonathan Dikes are the grant coordinators for TEEX.
