Alamo Colleges/Mission Solar Energy LLC Awarded $382,796 Job Training Grant

At a press conference July 15, the Alamo Colleges announced a partnership with Mission Solar LLC to provide job training for 270 new workers using a $382,796 Skills Development Fund grant from the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC).

“Skills grants deliver customized training solutions that help Texas employers and workers succeed in the marketplace,” said TWC Chairman Andres Alcantar, who presented a giant "check" to Alex Kim, president and CEO of Mission Solar Energy LLC, and Albert Almanza, human resources director for the company. “This investment builds not only employee skills, but the capabilities of our community colleges to the benefit of employers and the community. We are pleased to make this investment,” added Alcantar.

The grant will be used to custom train 270 new workers specifically for the solar energy industry, an emerging fast-growing industry in the college’s service area. Those trained will include cell/module production operators, facilities maintenance technicians and production equipment maintenance technicians. Upon completion of training, the workers will earn an average hourly wage of $14.76.

“This job training partnership with Mission Solar is a perfect fit for the Alamo Colleges, as the leading provider of workforce training in South Texas and a long-time supporter of renewable energy and sustainability efforts,” said Alamo Colleges Chancellor Dr. Bruce Leslie. “We are committed to supporting employers by providing top quality training that allows them to grow and fuels the growth of our local economy as well,” he added.
