Linde expands Skills Pipeline Workforce Development Programme in Louisiana


Linde has announced that its subsidiary, Praxair, Inc., has expanded its Skills Pipeline workforce development programme in collaboration with Central Louisiana Technical Community College (CLTCC) in Alexandria and the US Army installation at Fort Polk.

The new Army Career Skills Programme, which began in February, provides professional truck driving scholarships to soldiers who are transitioning back to civilian life. The programme is the first in the Skills Pipeline family to be solely focused on veterans.
