Blinn College offers variety of September career training courses in Brenham

Course offerings include specialty welding, industrial safety, first aid, customer service, and word processing

September 5, 2017

Blinn College’s A.W. Hodde, Jr. Technical Education Center will offer courses in specialty welding, industrial safety, first aid, and customer service this September.

Blinn will offer four industrial safety course sections in September, including Industrial Safety Training – General Industry Sept. 26-27, Industrial Boot Camp Sept. 11-15, and Powered Industrial Truck Operator on Friday, Sept. 15.

Introduction to Customer Service will be taught from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 13, and teaches students to meet customers’ needs by providing professional, helpful, high-quality service at all points of the customer interaction.

Blinn also will offer a one-day Red Cross CPR/First Aid course Friday, Sept. 15, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The course provides hands-on skills training to respond to breathing and cardiac emergencies, and to provide care for victims of sudden cardiac arrest through the safe use of an automated external defibrillator (AED).

The three specialty welding courses offered this month – CPWI+V Transmission and Distribution, CHTI Hydrostatic Test Inspection, and American Welding Society Certified Welding Inspector Preparatory – will be taught at the National Welding Inspection School in Burton.

Blinn’s technical and community education courses are designed to provide students the knowledge and abilities they need to enter the workforce immediately after completion of the courses. Many of these courses do not require a high school diploma and enrollment is fast and easy. As most of these courses are non-credit, students do not need to go through the College’s admission process to enroll. Programs vary in length and are offered with daytime, evening, and weekend options.

Prospective students can register by visiting the Hodde Center, located at 2910 S. Blue Bell Road in Brenham, during regular business hours. As part of Blinn’s Division of Technical & Community Education, its staff works in cooperation with local businesses to provide a well-trained workforce that strengthens the local economy.

Business owners can enroll their employees in Hodde Center courses using Texas Workforce Commission Skills Development and Skills for Small Business funds, and Hodde Center staff can help businesses complete the request form. Blinn also offers students access to scholarships through the Blinn College Foundation, private grants, and Workforce Solutions.
