State job training for veterans to be expanded

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A state workforce training initiative for military veterans is being expanded from four to 10 colleges and universities. The Texas Workforce Commission said it is awarding $1.5 million to support College for Credit for Heroes.

The program awards college credits for veterans’ experience to ease their way into the civilian workforce.

The program began last year with the Alamo Community College District in San Antonio, Lee College in Baytown, Lone Star College System in the Houston area and the San Jacinto Community College District in Pasadena.

The commission said it is adding Tarrant County College District, Dallas County Community College District, Angelo State University in San Angelo, Austin Community College District in Austin, Grayson College in Denison and Texas State Technical College-Harlingen.
