The Mobile Education & Technology Center
The Mobile Education & Technology Center is a high-tech training classroom outfitted with state of the art equipment. The Mobile Lab travels across the state of Louisiana bringing Internet access, hands-on testing, and live instruction, to the most marginalized areas and remote corners of the state. The unit is equipped with ten computer workstations and can travel to any community or location to perform onsite computer or educational training.
Each of the certification programs will be delivered using the capabilities of the mobile education and technology center:
- Teach basic and targeted computer skills to small and minority farmers, ranchers, homemakers, business owners, families, and other residents of Louisiana communities.
- Assist targeted audiences with understanding the challenges and creating opportunities for growth and expansion for their small businesses and communities.
- Demonstrate in a real and practical setting the food safety practices and procedures.
This allows many rural working families the opportunity to gain the knowledge, skills, and resources needed to successfully develop assets, improve their quality of life and aid the state of Louisiana in making strides toward economic parity.
