Workforce Training

A.W. Hodde Technical Education Center

In 2005 a small committee of Washington County business leaders and local officials was formed to explore the idea of building a training center with Blinn College that would focus on training the employees that area businesses needed to continue to grow in Brenham. In 2010 the A.W. Hodde Technical Education Center was opened in Brenham Business Center, a Class A Business Park. This state-of-the-art facility has been so successful, that it was expanded in 2014 to provide additional classroom and technical education space. 

Hodde Tech Center supports traditional post-secondary students seeking entry into their first career position, existing employees of local businesses updating skills and certifications, and transitioning employees working to better their skill set for the highly technical jobs that are in high demand. 

Fields offered include:

Welding

Pharmacy Technician

Certified Medical Assistant

Advanced Construction Safety

CNC Machining
