Work has begun on the new state of the art Workforce Solutions Complex on the campus of CVCC. This $23 million dollar, 86,000 square foot facility will house CCP courses for junior and senior high school students from all schools in Catawba County. Business-driven programs will include: Engineering, Mechatronics, Robotics, HVAC, Automotive, and Electrical trades. The three school systems will benefit as the facility will not only provide high-cost, upper level programs linked to the career/technical programs already in the schools but will also provide additional opportunities for business partnership developments. Conference rooms and seminar spaces will be available for school and business use.
