ExxonMobil to Fund Training Program for Houston Area Chemical Industry Jobs

ExxonMobil will fund a $500,000 workforce training program to enable Houston’s leading community colleges to prepare thousands of local residents for high-paying jobs in the growing local chemical manufacturing industry.

The initiative will build on the success of the nationally recognized Lee College ExxonMobil Process Technology Program and will benefit 50,000 students and educators over the next five years. ExxonMobil has contributed more than $2.6 million over the last 10 years to manufacturing workforce training initiatives across the U.S. Gulf Coast area, impacting more than 15,000 students.

Lee College will work with Houston Community College, Lone Star College, San Jacinto Junior College, Alvin Community College, Wharton County Junior College, Brazosport College, Galveston College and College of the Mainland to train students seeking certification or completion of degree programs for instrumentation, electrical, machinist/millwright, welding, pipefitting and other skills and competencies needed by the chemical industry. There are also future plans to include area high schools in the program, which will provide training that aligns with skills and competencies defined by industry, as well as nationally recognized certification programs.
