NATCHEZ - In 2014, Copiah-Lincoln Community College was awarded a Round 4 Department of Labor Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) Grant to create the Southeastern Transportation Network consortium. The grant is a four state consortium allowing the expansion and improved delivery of career training programs that can be completed in two years or less. The grant focus is on careers in the transportation industry. Through this grant initiative, Copiah-Lincoln Community College’s Natchez campus has developed a beneficial partnership with Jordan Carriers, a successful Natchez trucking business who was one of the signature sponsors supporting the grant.

Beginning in the 2015 fall semester, Co-Lin’s Natchez campus will offer a two-year Diesel Technology program. However, to start the program a strong partnership was needed.  Thanks to the support of Charles Jordan,owner of Jordan Carriers, a partnership has been created. 

The National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) sets the standard in construction education for more than 55 craft areas.
