HERNANDEZ'S OP 10.33 TECH SCHOOL MAKES ITS ENTRY

(Ed.'s Note: Well, it seems that another player has joined the ranks of local educational institutions aiming to raise the level of technical and vocational training of the local workforce. This one is the one promised by Mike Hernandez and his OP 10.33 organization that promised to make a dent in the poverty level locally by providing affordable educational opportunities.

One of our readers who looked into the matter recently sent us this comparison based on the Texas Workforce Commission comparisons. The OP 10.33 school is named Cameron County Education  Initiative Inc. and its up and running. The need for this type of training is so great locally that there are not enough providers to go around. Any entity that focuses on low-income students and makes an opportunity available to raise their skills level is more than welcome.)

So what entity will be credentialing this new school/ Will their instructors be certified to provide the education? Yes we need more technical and vocational opportunities for our students and at an affordable cost. Hope this new organization can provide what is required and needed at a reasonable cost. We don't need a Rio Grande Valley TRUMP college.

The purpose of CCEI is workforce training and is not intended to help students build a transcript of transferable credits. Instead, CCEI is committed to providing local in-demand vocational training programs at low tuition rates and without saddling students with any federal, private or institutional debt. CCEI is currently in the process of securing programmatic accreditation with NAHP & NCCER both of which are industry recognized national credentialing bodies. CCEI is confident these credentials will help its graduates demonstrate the quality and caliber of their training and lead to viable employment opportunities.

Of course Instructors are certified. It is an awesome opportunity for our community! This school needs to become known of so it can be taken advantage of. Spread the word to your acquaintances and refer them to visit the school.

Good questions. What certifications can be earned at this facility? What educational background do instructors and administrators have?? What job experience do the instructors have? Should our tax dollars be provided to this institution? Can we compare this training facility to other charter schools???
We surely have a need for vocational training here, but is this one worth our money?????
