Louisiana Delta Community College to expand Certification 4 Manufacturing program

BATON ROUGE, La (LOCAL 33) - Louisiana Delta Community College has an extensive relationship with Entergy Louisiana. Over the past several years, the power company has consistently made $10,000 strategic investments in the LDCC WorkReady U Adult Education program and the Accelerating Opportunity program to help adults earn their high school equivalency and increase the number of adults who enter post-secondary education and earn credentials that lead to family-supporting careers.
 
In fall 2016, Entergy donated $250,000 to LDCC and its partners to develop, grow, and enhance LED Fast Start's Certification 4 Manufacturing program.  Through this donation, LDCC has expanded course offerings and increased student access to the renowned C4M training program.  This past January, LDCC began offering a C4M class in Monroe. The college is set to add the C4M class during evening hours in Monroe beginning April 24, and this summer 2017, LDCC will offer C4M classes at its Bastrop Airport Campus.
 
The expansion of the C4M offerings will also extend to local high schools with an Entergy C4M Summer Institute for Richland, East Carroll, and West Carroll Parish high school students. Participating students will earn dual enrollment credit.
 
Within the next year, C4M will be offered at all LDCC campuses.  Through this effort, Entergy has powered LDCC's efforts in becoming the Advanced Manufacturing Training Hub of Northeast LA.
