TYLER - Tyler Junior College has partnered with Luminant to give students an opportunity to earn an Associate’s Degree in power plant technology.
There are about 250 people that apply to the program, but they only accept 20. With the growing popularity of the program, TJC and Luminant decided they needed to expand.
They are building a new center that will free up space for the power tract program. The building is going to be finished by the end of 2014 and students can start taking classes beginning in January.
It is a three-story building where students will learn everything from electrical maintenance technician to solar and wind technician.
They will take classes in instrumentation, mechanical, OSHA and gain hands on experience in the lab. Baker and Pruett said with Luminant employees coming in for training, it helps boost our local economy.
