South Louisiana Community College has reported a 95% increase in their Maritime Training Program in St. Mary Parish. Nearly 1,000 students have enrolled over the past six months which is a considerable growth in terms of enrollment.
“Under the guidance of SLCC’s Corporate College, our Marine Operations program is now able to focus on what we do best – service the oil and gas industry,” said Captain Carl Moore, assistant dean of the Marine and Petroleum Training Centers in Houma and Morgan City.
Captain Carl Moore also played a vital role in the donation of a replica Cenac Marine Service Barge to South Louisiana Community College, which you can read more about here.
