Hinds Community College prides itself in working with local employers to fulfill their needs. When KLLM Transport Services needed more trained drivers with professional credentials, Hinds and KLLM crafted a partnership that allows Hinds students to be trained in KLLM’s Richland academy in 16 weeks. A U.S. Department of Labor grant delivered through a regional consortium is helping Hinds provide training for barge deckhands needed by river barges along the Mississippi River. And to meet the industry demand for trained welders, Hinds opened midnight welding classes on two campuses to maximize the use of facilities and instructional slots.
