Are you a landscape industry professional interested in teaching others about your line of work? If so, Portland Community College might be interested in talking to you.
The Landscape Technology Program (LAT) at the Rock Creek campus, on the west side of Portland, is looking for industry professionals interested in conducting workshops. Such an arrangement would help the college fill gaps in its offerings, while putting its top-notch equipment and facilities to better use.
“Our vision is to foster relationships amongst industry professionals, serve as a resource for training and information and to simply live up to the true meaning of a community college by serving our area landscape community better,” said Dr. David Sandrock, LAT chairman at PCC.
Those interested may submit a proposal. Proposals should cover a topic of interest to industry professionals and those training to join the industry. Examples would include planting, safety, equipment, pruning, or irrigation troubleshooting, to name a few. Presenters will be able to set their own price and class size limit. They will be asked to do their own external marketing as well. The college would help market internally to students, and will provide facilities, classroom space and other needs. The college would receive a portion of proceeds to cover its expenses. Those interested should contact Dr. Sandrock at 971-722-7231 or firstname.lastname@example.org with their proposal.
