TCL, air station partner to train Marines
A cohort of Marines recently completed 128 hours of training in electrical installation and troubleshooting offered by the Technical College of the Lowcountry’s Continuing Education Division.
Rebecca W. Bass, TCL’s Dean for Continuing Education said, “We are proud to play a significant role in training these young Marines. Through this training, they will be prepared to handle basic electrical systems issues during their upcoming deployment.”
First Lt. Sharon A. Hyland, Public Affairs Director for Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort, said, “The partnership with the Technical College of the Lowcountry is another great example of the way the community supports Beaufort Marines. We appreciate the dedicated instructors at TCL and the administration who helped supplement our Marines’ training by teaching them this valuable trade.”
