Midlands Technical College has joined an international workforce development program focused on promoting trade and investment.

MTC is now a member of the Transatlantic Business & Investment Council, which works to connect economic interests between North America and Europe, and was recognized as the organization’s member of the month for September.

“From the Enterprise Campus to all of our locations, we work every day to help businesses develop and grow,” Chuck Whipple, executive director of the MTC Enterprise Campus Authority, said in a news release. “From the time companies get started through all stages of growth, we work alongside employers to provide the workforce they need.”

TBIC’s College Certification Program aims to provide top-tier technical training while building local industry and businesses ties, according to its website. Students will learn how to navigate international economies and attract European development.

The certification process includes an in-depth assessment of factors including the level of technical education and practical training offered to a college’s students, as well as the level of cooperation between the college and local industry. According to the website, a second step of the process includes the opportunity to participate in a networking and fact-finding trip to Europe.  

MTC’s Enterprise Industrial Campus, located near the intersections of interstates 20 and 77, features a mix of industrial and office users from five to 40 acres and can accommodate buildings of up to 400,000 square feet. Its Business Accelerator is designed to provide services for emerging businesses ramping up for the next phase of product production.
