Alabama launches training for shipyard workers

Governor Bob Riley

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Gov. Bob Riley and others are launching construction of a worker training center in Mobile for Alabama's
growing maritime industries.

Riley, Mobile Mayor Sam Jones and other officials are scheduled
to attend the ceremony Monday morning on Pinto Island in Mobile.

Riley said Alabama's Maritime Science Center will allow multiple
shipbuilding companies to customize worker training while allowing
Alabama to streamline and enhance the state's workforce development

A similar center recently opened in Ozark to train aviation workers, and a robotics technology training center is under construction in north Alabama.
