Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College’s Instrumentation andControls Technology program has received gold-level endorsement from Central Gulf Industrial Alliance (CGIA), an industrial alliance of industrial companies and colleges in the Central Gulf Coast region. The gold-level endorsement, which is the highest level of endorsement available, is based on factors like industrial training, safety and job placement. It marks the program, which is offered at the Jackson County Campus, as a superior training program in the region.
“The Instrumentation and Controls Technology program and instructors are proud to be endorsed by CGIA,” said John Poelma, chairperson of the School of Manufacturing, Maritime, and Transportation at the Jackson County Campus. “It validates our commitment as a college to our community and our students. The program went through a long and thorough audit process that included our curriculum, training facilities, instruction, safety and job placement of graduates. We knew we had an excellent program, but this gives official proof of that excellence.”
