Ft. Dalles Readiness and Workforce Innovations Center Ribbon Cutting
Join us for the official opening of the Ft. Dalles Readiness and Workforce Innovations Center.
This partnership building with the Oregon Military Department and the Department of Community Colleges and Workforce Development comprises of 73,000 square feet, providing training space for the Oregon National Guard and 10,000-square-foot public conference/meeting space. In addition, the center will have two college classrooms, two labs and high-bay instructional space featuring a machine shop and state-of-the-art welding lab. Renewable energy training will be consolidated into this new space, which in turn will open current labs and classrooms for other college programs. The structure and training equipment are funded through a combination of federal and state sources, as well as contributions from Sherman County Court, under the leadership of Judge Gary Thompson, and a 10-year commitment by Caithness Energy partners at Shepherds Flat Wind Farm.
