Metropolitan Community College

 A Nebraska community college is using federal COVID-19 relief funds to pay for tuition and books for high schoolers from the state to take courses this summer. The Omaha World-Herald reports that officials at the Metropolitan Community College hope their newly approved offer will pull in thousands of students. The college saw about a 15% drop in summer enrollment from 2019 to 2020, said Bill Owen, the college’s vice president for strategic initiatives.

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Some Omaha community college students are putting their sheet metal lessons to work building an airplane.

The Metropolitan Community College students, two or more at a time, work on the plane four hours a day, five days a week for five weeks. Then another set of students takes over.

The workforce training manager for the college, Sam Dickson, says the students get 100 hours of training in basic skills.

Metropolitan Community College is partnering with Cyberworld Institute to offer high quality IT and cybersecurity certification training.
