Red Wing, MN (February 1, 2017) -- Minnesota State College Southeast and UL are proud to announce a pilot program to bring UL Knowledge Solutions curriculum to the college's campus in the historic town of Red Wing, Minnesota.
UL is the global leader in developing technical expertise that covers hundreds of industries and thousands of products with demanding regulatory and performance requirements. UL Knowledge Solutions provides the educational resources needed to develop, manufacture, install and deploy safer products throughout the global marketplace.
"MSC Southeast is excited and honored to collaborate with such a prestigious organization as UL," says Dr. Dorothy Duran, President of Minnesota State College Southeast. "Their Knowledge Solutions training will help provide education opportunities to our industrial communities and our state. This collaboration also falls in line with our goal to pursue new technical training, coursework, and programming opportunities to meet the needs of today's workforce. "
This pilot program will begin with a two-day course:
Course Title: Industrial Control Panels UL 508A and Short-Circuit Current Ratings & UL 698A 3rd Edition, Industrial Control Panels Relating to Hazardous (Classified) Locations
Length: (Two Days) April 25, 2017 - 8 am to 5 pm; April 26, 8 am to 5pm

This initiative is intended to bring UL's subject matter expertise locally to all manufacturers, industry, and technical professionals near MSC Southeast. Located only an hour southeast of the Twin Cities, Red Wing is easily accessed from Minneapolis-St. Paul, Rochester, the Eau Claire/Chippewa Valley region, and the La Crosse area.
"For those looking to spend more time in historic and beautiful Red Wing, discounts will be made available at participating hotels," says Travis Thul, MSC Southeast Dean of Trade and Technology. "Limited seating will also be offered at the Winona campus for those interested in taking this course through a remote interactive simulcast at no additional fee.

In the future, the college plans to expand its UL curriculum in additional competencies and offer courses on both the Winona and the Red Wing campuses.
