Gateway's Horizon: A Center of Excellence
Herring, Jayne; Colony, Lee
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J3), v82 n8 p34-37 Nov-Dec 2007
This article describes Gateway Technical College's Horizon Center for Transportation Technology, located in Kenosha, Wisconsin, which was the product of collaboration with business and industry, community support and a U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) grant. The center, which opened this fall, is a prime example of a sustainable community partnership formed to improve training for key industry groups. The center, home to transportation education programs (two automotive programs and aeronautics-pilot training), uses leading-edge technology to prepare students for careers in automotive technology--specifically the most sophisticated operations such as the luxury vehicle service environment. Students in pilot training receive some of the best training in the Midwest, with the number of multi-engine training hours distinguishing it from comparable programs elsewhere.
