Pasco-Hernando State College received $227,943 in funding through the Florida Pathways to Career Opportunities Grant (PCOG) program for 2023-2024. These funds are aimed at helping start, expand or operate registered apprenticeship and pre-apprenticeship programs at Florida school districts, colleges, state universities and private training entities. The funding will allow the purchase of equipment, tools, materials and consumable supplies that are needed for these programs. It will also fund instructors and curriculum.

PHSC currently offers an apartment maintenance technician apprenticeship program. Here, students learn skills such as appliance repair, basic electrical, basic plumbing and carpentry, and more through classroom instruction and on-the-job training.

“The apprenticeship programs are important because they provide an opportunity to learn new skills that are in high demand within our local area. Students can also retrain and gain new skills that will allow them to be employable in a new field,” said Christopher Brantley, Ed.D., Assistant Dean, PHSC Workforce Development and Career & Technical Education.

As the only college in the area to receive this grant funding PHSC is looking to further expand its apprenticeship offerings with help from the PCOG.
