Pitt will team with regional college and innovative Pittsburgh-based training center to transform its Titusville campus.
TITUSVILLE — Three organizations will offer academic and workforce training at Pitt-Titusville starting in 2020.
University of Pittsburgh trustees voted in 2018 to retool the Titusville campus as an Education and Training Hub. Beginning in August 2020, the Northern Pennsylvania Regional College, Manchester Bidwell Corp. and the University of Pittsburgh's Manufacturing Assistance Center will offer academic and workforce training on campus.
Pitt also will offer two associate degree programs at the hub, in nursing and physical therapist assistant.
Pitt's Manufacturing Assistance Center provides vocational education and training that provides students with the technical skills that regional employers need.
The Northern Pennsylvania Regional College offers academic associate degree programs, certificate programs, short-term classes, workshops, seminars and customized training.
Manchester Bidwell offers adult career training and a youth development program that uses visual arts to help students improve academic performance, develop higher-order critical thinking skills and improve interpersonal skills.
The new Titusville location will be modeled after the organization's Bidwell Training Center in Pittsburgh.
