Strong Workforce is a program created under the recommendation of the Community College Board of Governors, “adding a new annual recurring investment of $248 million to spur career technical education (CTE) in the nation’s largest workforce development system of 115 colleges“. Project 16: “Awarding Veterans the CTE College Credit They Deserve”  aims to “create a clear map between military training categories and training standards for
Career and Technical Education programs.”
This project has funded the development and implementation of MAP within these 12 community colleges.
