I was wondering if I could get training to work at one of the plants near Port Lavaca without having to drive to Victoria every day?
As a matter of fact, Victoria College's Workforce and Continuing Education Department is offering several craft training courses in Calhoun County this fall.
If you're interested in electrical training, Electrical Level I training begins Sept. 5 and runs through Jan. 16, 2013, each Monday and Wednesday evening from 6 to 9 p.m. at the VC Calhoun County Center.
Millwright Level II training begins Sept. 4 and runs through Jan. 15, 2013, each Tuesday and Thursday evening from 6 to 9 p.m. at the VC Wilkins Industrial Trade Center. If you plan to take Millwright Level II, you should have already completed the introductory course.
