NDSCS GrantBy Sarah Hoffbeck

NDSCS was recently awarded a $2.7 million grant from the U.S. Department of Labor for the North Dakota Advanced Manufacturing Skills Training Initiative, or NDAMSTI, led by the College.

The Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) Grant supports partnerships between training providers, such as two-year colleges, and local employers.

THE  TAACCCT grant will allow NDSCS to enhance its delivery of focused, hands-on instruction in short courses. And skills learned will be reinforced through practical application right on-the-job.

By working with employers to upgrade employee skills, individuals can work towards a degree and remain employed full time.
