Our friends at the UVM Transportation Research Center (TRC) have a long history of research and innovation in the transportation sector. They have new reason to be proud, as last week they were selected to host the Northeastern Region Surface Transportation Workforce Center by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). A4td supported this proposal, and we are excited to keep exploring workforce development opportunities in this industry together.
With this designation from FHWA, UVM TRC accepts a four year grant that, among other things, allows the creation of a transportation “jobs and skills” needs study assessment that brings industry and public sector together to best meet the needs of the transportation industry. Key partners in this project will include Rutgers’ Center for Advanced Infrastructure and Transportation, as well as the Heldrich Center for Workforce Development.
We look forward to the exciting days ahead, as we will explore new ways to work with the center, and keep our workforce development efforts effective and relevant.
