EPCC opens Transportation Training Center

Wednesday, El Paso Community College (EPCC) officials and invited guests held a celebration to mark the opening of the Transportation Training Center (TTC) at the Valle Verde campus. 

“Attending and graduating college is becoming more and more important, because by 2020, 65 percent of all jobs will require a degree or certificate,” Dr. William Serrata, EPCC President, said.

“The Valle Verde Transportation Center will provide many innovative opportunities that will help us reach our goal of educating more students, placing them on a path to completing their degrees and increasing educational attainment in our region.”

The TTC will train El Paso’s future workforce in the areas of Diesel Technology, Automotive Technology and Auto Collision and Repair.

“Studies have shown that these careers have a high demand, now and in the future,” college officials shared. “EPCC is committed to transforming students’ futures by providing high quality and affordable education opportunities for our region. These programs will enhance student life and experience while providing new and innovative learning opportunities.”

Students say they choose to study at EPCC for the state-of-the-art facilities, experienced faculty and for the high-quality training they receive.

One student, Chloe Bauer, who is also an active duty soldier, is working towards her Associate of Applied Science in Diesel Technology and says this program will prepare her to embark on a successful career path.

“I chose the EPCC Diesel Program because it offers an excellent value over the private colleges with similar degree offerings in El Paso. The EPCC facility is wonderful,” Bauer said.  Students have everything we need to prepare us for the workforce.”

Students, using the state-of-the-art equipment and instruction from EPCC accredited faculty, will be highly skilled and lend to bettering the quality of life in our region.

This is the second of six construction projects to finish as part of the College’s Master Plan. Learn more about Districtwide expansion by visiting this website.
