Preparing our local workforce to be ready for the opportunities presented by the growth and expansion happening in and around our community is a high priority for the Aransas County Partnership EDC and its community partners, Aransas County, The City of Rockport, Town of Fulton, and The Aransas County Navigation District.
Aransas County and Del Mar College have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with the county owning the facility and land while the College operates the workforce development center once renovations are completed next year. The 16,016 square-foot center will include classrooms, labs and additional space and house high-demand marketable skills training for Aransas County and surrounding communities to build a sustainable workforce based on “essential” jobs imperative to residents’ work skills sustainability, entrepreneurial endeavors and career resilience.
The partnership strategically focuses on training that targets occupations identified by the Texas Workforce Commission and Workforce Solutions of the Coastal Bend that meet Aransas County’s local and regional needs, including programs within health sciences, construction trades, public safety, technology, professional enrichment, adult education and communications.
