Las Vegas CBS KXNT – As government and education officials across the nation discuss the role of the community colleges in workforce training, Las Vegas City Hall has opened a College of Southern Nevada campus to specialize in it.
A third-floor storage space at city hall has been transformed into a new CSN instructional center. The location is intended to offer a convenient workforce training location for downtown residents, businesses and city hall employees.
Course work at the city hall campus will include OHSA training, comupter skills, and professional certificate programs.
Congressman Steven Horsford commended the arrangement.
“President Obama has made strategic community college investments, and this center is exactly the type of model that’s envisioned for those investments,” Horsford said at the ribbon cutting on Wednesday.
