BROWNSVILLE, Texas – The Texas A&M University System and two of its state engineering agencies, the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) and the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX), recently announced a new initiative to grow the advanced manufacturing industry in the Rio Grande Valley.
Through the Texas A&M RGV Advanced Manufacturing / Training Innovation Now (TRAIN) program, the University develops training courses and creates partnerships to meet the needs of current and future employers in the Port of Brownsville.
Texas A&M anticipates that, in two years, TRAIN will award 10,000 certificates through online and face-to-face classes.
TEES and TEEX, two state agencies recognized for their job training and professional development, will offer these courses in English and Spanish. There is no cost to participants, thanks to $ 10 million in funding secured by State Senator Eddie Lucio Jr.
The courses will start in October. Visited trainestufuturo.org to sign up for training and more information.
