by | Jun 5, 2017 | Business, Schools & Education

The Germanna Community College Center for Workforce Fredericksburg Center for Advanced Technology will open its new Fredericksburg Center for Advanced Technology at 5 p.m. Tuesday June 6.
GCC has leased 8,046 square feet from The Rappaport Cos. at 1315 Central Park Blvd.
The new center will be the city base for Germanna’s apprenticeship programs, including electrical, welding, HVAC, industrial maintenance/machinist, masonry, plumbing, gas fitter, asphalt technician and construction inspector. It will also provide training for certificates in 3D Printing, small engine repair, drone building and operating and other skills.
There will also be a maker space.
In 2016, Germanna and the Fredericksburg EDA signed a memorandum of understanding for a five-year grant amounting to $125,000.
GCC President David A. Sam has said FredCAT will help provide the area with skills gap workers in trades that don’t require a degree but pay well.
