Omaha, NE, Training Facility Underway

Metropolitan Community College announced the expansion of its South Omaha, NE, Campus on Wednesday, Sept. 25.

A ceremony for the Automotive Training Center was held in the campus’s west parking lot, where the new two-story, $32 million dollar academic facility will change the outlook for the auto industry in Omaha and the region.


“The Automotive Training Center and Center for Advanced Manufacturing were created with regional area economic needs in mind, giving students high-demand job opportunities in the automotive industry,” said Randy Schmailzl, MCC president.


The 100,000 square-foot Automotive Training Center will bring together the Automotive Technology and Auto Collision Technology programs, currently housed at two different College locations. The facility will have more than 30 automotive bays, giving students an increased number of workspaces, including an area dedicated to a new Toyota T-TEN master mechanic training program, with room for other specialized training options.
