Cowley College unveils new mobile technology trailer
Thanks to a $50,000 JIIST (Jobs for Innovative Industry Skills Training) grant from the Kansas Department of Commerce, Cowley College was recently able to create a mobile technology trailer for “on-the-go” training to use for its Nondestructive Testing (NDT) program.
The trailer will be used for boot camp and short-term certificate training across the state. The primary target is for NDT, but the trailer is versatile enough that it can also be utilized for welding and other technical areas of study.
The trailer will also promote NDT and other technical programs at area high schools. The JIIST grant is a matching funds competitive award with dollars needing to be spent by June 2023. Area businesses also contributed funds as indicated on the trailer gate.
