CCAC receives $100,000 PNC Charitable Trust grant to fund “Cracker Ready”
The Community College of
Allegheny County has received a grant totaling $100,000 from the PNC Charitable
Trust to train workers from Washington County for jobs created by the
construction of Shell Chemical’s $6 billion ethane cracker plant in Beaver
grant pays for all tuition, books and certification costs that are not covered
by financial aid, as determined by the Free Application for Federal
Student Aid (FAFSA). The
goal of the project is to recruit a minimum of 10 students in the Mechatronics certificate
program and six students in the CDL program. All students must reside in
Washington County and will be required to complete a FAFSA application to
determine if they are eligible for financial aid. If additional funds are available
once financial aid is applied, more students will enter the program.
In the event of an emergency, being prepared is everything. The CCAC Emergency Guidelines booklets include vital information on emergency response procedures at CCAC locations.
