Alamo Colleges/Fox Tank Partner for Job Training

 

AUSTIN – Fox Tank Co. has partnered with Alamo Colleges to provide job training using a $304,848 Skills Development Fund grant from the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC).

The grant will be used to custom train 135 new and incumbent workers in basic and advanced welding techniques to address critical labor shortages in the manufacturing and energy industries. Those trained will include welders, testers and painters.

“Skills grants deliver customized training solutions that help Texas employers and workers succeed in the marketplace,” said TWC Chairman Andres Alcantar. “This investment builds not only employee skills, but the capabilities of our community colleges to the benefit of employers and the community. We are pleased to make this investment.”

Fox Tank Co. manufactures steel-welded oil field storage tanks and separation equipment for the energy industry. Upon completion of training, the workers will earn an average hourly wage between $12 and $20.

“We are excited about this partnership with Fox Tank Company, which will bring critically needed technical training to the Greater Kerrville area," said Alamo Colleges Chancellor Dr. Bruce Leslie. "Programs such as the one funded by this grant from the Texas Workforce Commission allow us to extend the job training expertise of the Alamo Colleges beyond Bexar County and into our wider service area.”

From the program’s inception in 1996 through 2012, Skills Development Fund grants have created or upgraded more than 286,000 jobs throughout Texas. The grants have assisted 3,901 employers with their customized training needs. The Legislature appropriated $48.5 million to the Skills Development Fund for the 2012-13 biennium. Employers seeking more information about the Skills Development Fund may visit the TWC website at http://skills.texasworkforce.org.
