LTC Broadband Telecom Program Forms Partnership With Metronet
As part of its continuing commitment to serve both student and community needs, Lincoln Trail College of Robinson, Illinois will begin offering specialized training to employees of Metronet, an Indiana-based broadband communications company. The classes begin in April and will be taught monthly on the Lincoln Trail campus by faculty in the school’s Broadband Technology program.
Dean of Instruction David Carpenter sees the collaboration as a natural fit. “The uniqueness of our broadband program, the only one of its kind among community colleges in Illinois, pairs nicely with the training requirements of an industry leader like Metronet whose 100% fiber optic network is equally unique. We believe this relationship will offer long-term benefits to all involved.”
Kevin Stelmach, Metronet General Manager adds, “Metronet is very pleased and excited to enter into this partnership with Lincoln Trail College. We are extremely confident it will prove to be of great value to the students, school, as well as our company.”
