Many are looking forward to a new Central Oregon Community College facility in Redmond that will be a real support to Central Oregon businesses; the Redmond Tech Center. COCC Vice President for Administration Matt McCoy says the new building is part of a $42-million construction program bond approved by voters in 2009. "We anticipate that, with the technology education center in Redmond; we will open that in 2013 in the fall term, and some of the programming that we're looking at is: nondestructive testing and nondestructive inspection. Those 2 programs areas will be complementary to the industry groups that exist both in Redmond and throughout all Central Oregon." McCoy says they are also looking at digital arts and media and mechanical systems programs. He says they are also developing special programs to help business owners improve their business models.
