Delgado Community College is receiving an $890,000 grant to support its Maritime and Industrial Training program.
The funds were awarded last week by the Louisiana Community and Technical Colleges system through its Workforce Training Rapid Response Fund. It will help offer current and prospective students a discount on over 20 courses, including training opportunities for early-career maritime workers.
It will also be used to help support existing vessel engineering, tankerman and steersman classes and two new programs debuting in 2019.
