Hodde Center offers May courses in industrial technology, industrial safety, specialty welding, and business and technology

Course registration is available at 2910 South Blue Bell Road

May 1, 2017

Blinn College will offer courses in industrial technology, industrial safety, specialty welding, and business and technology this month at the A.W. Hodde, Jr. Technical Education Center.

Blinn’s technical and community education courses are designed to provide students the knowledge and ability 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.

The 12,000-square-foot Hodde Center was built in 2009 to provide local training for a quality, viable workforce in Washington and the surrounding communities. 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.

Small business owners can enroll their employees in Hodde Center courses for free using Texas Workforce Commission 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.
