Transportation Center of Excellence speeding up its efforts

Fourth annual Career Exploration Fair to feature all sorts of industries wanting to lay claim to future workforce
A new trailer aimed at attracting tomorrow’s transportation-related workforce is not quite finished, but the state department that bought it and equipped it with the help of one industry partner after another is not waiting to roll it out.
“We don’t have time to wait for it to be pristine and perfect,” said Chris Hadfield, the director of the Minnesota State Transportation Center of Excellence.
The urgency in Hadfield’s voice stems from the struggle trucking firms, auto mechanic shops, utilities providers, transit officials and a number of other industries in need of qualified technicians have faced in recent years.
