Green Collar Workforce Training Center

Mayor Jordan initiated a coalition among the Northwest Arkansas Community College, the Northwest Arkansas Labor Council, the University of Arkansas College of Engineering and the Chamber of Commerce to open a green collar jobs training center in Fayetteville. The Arkansas Energy office designated the Northwest Arkansas Community College and Pulaski Technical College as two Centers of Excellence in the state.
On February 26, 2010 Governor Mike Beebe announced the awarding of stimulus funds in the form of grants to both of these schools for green job training that will eventually provide up to 600 additional jobs in green industries for Little Rock and Northwest Arkansas. The ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on June 9, 2010.
