The Cincinnati State Workforce Development center recently won a PUCO grant which allows them to continue to offer Middletown companies HAZMAT, Rescue, and Safety. The Center has conducted a safety and security audit for one Middletown company and we anticipate that they will continue to expand their services here. Please see the following excerpt from their website:
Public Utilities Commission of Ohio awards Cincinnati State another HAZMAT training grant
The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio has awarded Cincinnati State a grant for $87,700 to conduct specialized training through its Workforce Development Center. This marks the 14th consecutive year that the WDC, in conjunction with our partners from the Hamilton County Fire Chiefs Association & Greater Cincinnati Hazardous Materials Unit (GC HAZMAT), has received such a grant. This substantial grant renewal will continue to allow Cincinnati State’s Center for HAZMAT, Rescue & Safety to provide a full range of HAZMAT response training to area fire and police departments and the Greater Cincinnati Hazardous Materials Unit-Regional HAZMAT/WMD Response Team. WDC executive director Dr. Dennis N. Ulrich congratulated Brian Canteel, the Workforce Business Manager, who has consistently secured this grant on behalf of the College.
