Jackson County Schools will launch its dual-enrollment HVAC program in mid-January for Jackson County High School students.
Director of Schools Kristy Brown said an instructor has been hired and the program is through Livingston-TCAT. Brown said workforce research shows how much local HVAC workers are needed.
“They need workers, they need skilled people who can do that, not just from Jackson County but any county around here,” Brown said. “I believe that the closest TCAT program that offers that is in Cumberland County. So, I look forward to this being a successful program since there’s not one close by here.”
Brown said adults will also be able to enroll in the program starting at the end of January. That location will be at the Jackson County Instructional Service Center in Gainesboro.
