Colorado Wins Funds to Provide Job Training in Energy Field
The U.S. Department of Labor has awarded Colorado $2 million to prepare workers for careers in the energy industry, according to an agency announcement earlier in the week.
The department gave a total of $125 million as part of the federal government’s Community-Based Job Training Grants Initiative, a program that is meant to provide training to students and workers in high-growth industries.
Pueblo Community College was also awarded $1.9 million to train students for advanced manufacturing occupations.
The news comes as the Bush administration has proposed terminating certain job training programs, including the federal labor department’s Work Incentive Grant Program, which awarded $1 million to Colorado in 2006.
