Ground Broken For Transportation Training Center
BATON ROUGE (AP) — State officials have broken ground for the Baton Rouge Community College's Center of Excellence for Transportation Technology.
The automotive training center will be one of the anchors of the Ardendale development, which will be built on a 200-acre tract northeast of BRCC.
The Advocate reports Thursday the center will train college and high school students to work as mechanics and give them a chance to become familiar with the latest equipment.
The center will also be a place where veteran mechanics can complete certification programs. Plans are to open the training center between fall 2016 and early 2017.
