Center of Excellence in Transportation Technology

This is an important milestone for the State of Louisiana and Baton Rouge Community College. The program is part the college’s new Center of Excellence in Transportation Technology.

The Center will be targeting the areas of Automotive Technology, Aviation Technology, Logistics and Security, and Pipeline Transportation. The Center will be utilizing multiple locations around the area, including the new Smiley Heights Development, the Baton Rouge Airport, and a newly leased training facility located on Hooper Road.

The need for qualified Helicopter pilots in the Gulf region has skyrocketed over the past five years as a disproportionate number helicopter pilots have retired and the need for new pilots is expected to grow exponentially throughout the next five years. The Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasts job growth in the rotor industry as careers for helicopter pilots are expected to increase up to 21 percent between 2010 and 2020. Furthermore, the Oil and Gas industry, Emergency Medical Services, and Law Enforcement have all seen significant growth with respect to the use of helicopters.
