Few industries are as critical to the U.S. economy as transportation. Skilled automotive, railroad, and airline technicians shuttle the goods and people that drive every aspect of domestic and international commerce. The transportation sector offers some of the most exciting opportunities for workers to address critical issues of this time: climate change, resource conservation, and energy use. Community college workforce programs play a central role in preparing students for positions in these rapidly advancing career fields. Community college students can make a significant contribution to the transportation workforce. Transportation training programs in key areas, such as automotive, rail, and air transportation, are in high demand on community college campuses, in some cases aided by grant money. In this article, the author highlights efforts to prepare students for fast-paced, transportation-related jobs.
