After five months of production, Lamar State College Orange received a customized “mobile training unit” purchased with Texas Reskilling and Upskilling Through Education (TRUE) grant funds.

The $500,000 mobile simulation unit was designed in conjunction with industry recommendations.

College leaders say it will be certified by the U.S. Coast Guard for training students enrolled in electromechanical, instrumentation, logistics and maritime programs.

“Hands-on experience in these fields is vital to the safety and success of our local industry and beyond,” the college said in a release.
