Lab Description: The State University of New York ATTAIN (Advanced Technology Training and Information Networking) is a statewide project offering an assortment of academic, occupational and employability courses through state of the art technology labs. These courses are geared to introduce as well as supplement student participants with educational & vocational skills through advanced technology training for a high-demanding technological world.
The BCUL has maintained their focus on work readiness and job training by continuing to build solid relationships between the educational community and community based organizations. The State University at Binghamton has provided three student interns each semester from the Computer Science Department to assist with the daily operation of the lab. Broome County Community College and the Chairperson of the Computer Science Department are discussing a new initiative to bring credit baring courses to the ATTAIN lab. The goal is to begin offering courses as part of their curriculum. Collaborations with Workforce One and the LDSS continue to provide referrals to the lab for digital literacy and work readiness training, in addition to the Microsoft certification courses. The BCUL has built relationships with community based organizations such as Experience Works, Fairview Recoveries, VINES Project, and Gang Prevention Program to provide training services to their clients.
