According to BRCTC President Dr. Peter Checkovich, the college has begun a long-term partnership with the manufacturer to provide curriculum options for those seeking training. He said the college has four existing programs that would benefit anyone seeking employment with P&G: mechatronics, instrumentation, chemical process control and robotics.
"We think we have some program in place that are already of interest to them, and we have some grant money to work with, so if there are other new programs that they need for whatever their educational need would be, we can respond to that," Checkovich said.
Blue Ridge Community and Technical College received a $30,000 grant from P&G to use toward curriculum needs for, but will be able to receive a match for the grant from the state, totaling $60,000, he said.
"We can get a lot of education with that," Checkovich said. "We're going to tailor the need to the company in term of the length of the degree program and what's taught in it. Some of that will start in the spring semester. They've looked at some of the curriculum we've put together already and they're pretty satisfied with it. There may be a couple of tweaks, but I think you'll start seeing some of this begin to develop this spring, like January or February."
By offering curriculum and training options now, residents will have about two years to train and acquire the requested skills before the plant opens, Checkovich said. He anticipates the partnership with P&G will have a positive impact on the college's enrollment.

Blue Ridge Community and Technical College President Peter Checkovich said he agrees that there needs to be some kind of formula in place.
"When your enrollment drops significantly, that should be an opportunity to say 'hey, this is a chance to shift our resources to where the growth is," Checkovich said.
Checkovich said when the school sees an increase in enrollment, but not in funding, the only option it has is to increase tuition and fees, which in return could hurt them and the community.
So if you have high enrollment, you'll have high performance for the rest of those indicators," Checkovich said.
"One of the previous arguments was, 'well, schools will lose budget' and they might, because they aren't turning out as many qualified student for jobs. That is one thing, that at least community colleges, should be measured by, and we do pretty well in those areas," Checkovich added.

Blue Ridge Community and Technical College President Peter G. Checkovich gives faculty and staff a tour of the school's new campus building Friday.
"Who's ready to move out (here)?," CTC President Peter G. Checkovich asked the smiling group toward the end of a tour he conducted.

The three-story, academic/administration building on the college's new 46-acre campus at 13650 Apple Harvest Drive west of Martinsburg is on track to be ready for the beginning of fall semester classes on Aug. 20, Checkovich said.
College administrators are planning to move from leased first-floor space in the Berkeley County administration building at 400 W. Stephen St. in July, he said.
The building is about 20,000-square-feet larger than the leased space, and Checkovich pointed to multiple places for students to study, gather and sleep.
"And they do sleep," Checkovich said.
Just beyond the building's welcome desk, an Internet cafe taking shape in the building will seat more than 70 students, Checkovich said. A place for students to eat and a bookstore will be operated nearby.
While lacking furnishings and finishing touches, most of the building's interior walls appeared to be painted. Tile and carpet flooring was in varying stages of completion.
About the only significant challenge that will not be addressed by the first day of classes will be the lack of a left-turn lane that is needed on Apple Harvest Drive (W.Va. 45), Checkovich said.
Until the road is widened, he said the college may need assistance with traffic direction at the campus entrance.
Trees will be planted along the entrance road to the campus, and some large rocks unearthed by site preparation will become part of landscaping in front of the building, Checkovich said.

We were then joined by Dr. Peter Checkovich and Anne Shipway from Blue Ridge CTC for an update on their programs.
President of Blue Ridge Community and Technical College Dr. Peter Checkovich had a good report card for the college's new facilities, and said the year had gotten underway without a hitch. There are some looming budget cuts at the state level that Dr. Checkovich said will be trickling down to the school. Hear his take on that and find out more about the school at their website.
