Philadelphia College Builds Auto Training Tech Center
Nov. 23, 2020— The Community College of Philadelphia (CCP) is underway with the building of a new center focused on preparing students for careers in the automotive industry, according to KYW Newsradio.
Ground broke on the $34 million project last week. The center is expected to serve as the main training loaction for the college's transportation, advanced manufacturing and health care programs.
According to recent renderings, the CCP's new center will feature classrooms and labs designed for study of transportation technology, helping students earn credentials from auto manufacturers. The program will also feature training on alternative fuels and heavy truck technology.
Classes could begin to be held in the center as early as spring 2022.
