- Meet Serah Olivarez, one of the first students to complete the Introduction to Process Technology course at Del Mar College’s Adult Education & Literacy Center in Alice. .
Process technicians are sought after in the refining, petrochemical and manufacturing industries. Median pay for process technology-related jobs in the Coastal Bend is nearly $40 per hour, according to labor market advisor Emsi. .
"I've worked in a bakery and have been a secretary... this is way different than that," Serah elaborated, "It's exciting to be one of the first to go through this class here in Alice. This was a good start so that I can go on and get my associate’s degree in Process Technology at Del Mar and hopefully work at a refinery." .
The course is made possible by a $787,500 grant from the Rural South Texas Economic Development Corporation that targets General Education Development (GED) students and is intended to serve underprivileged areas of South Texas, said Dr. Leonard Rivera, DMC dean of Continuing Education and Off-Campus Programs. .
DMC opened the Alice Adult Education & Literacy Center in May with a $2 million Adult Education and Literacy (AEL) grant from the Texas Workforce Commission. The grant enables the College to expand needed educational programs in an 11-county region of the Coastal Bend. AEL programs – GED, English as a Second Language, Adult Basic Education and Career Pathways – are offered free of charge.
