Delgado Maritime and Industrial Training Center
New Orleans, Louisiana
Located on Old Gentilly Road in New Orleans, the Delgado Maritime and Industrial Training Center is a new 18,750 square foot facility. The long awaited project is being paid for by bonds authorized in the 2007 Legislative Session. Delgado has provided training and instruction to licensed mariners and industry personnel in the Maritime, Oil & Gas, and Safety/ Homeland Security fields for over two decades.
Scope of the facility includes one two-story building, steel structure, with masonry, glass, and metal panel exterior. Site work and the construction of a new parking lot are also part of the $7 million facility plan, expected to be complete in early 2016.
Delgado states, "The Maritime, Fire and Industrial Training Facility at Delgado Community College has earned a national and international reputation for providing high-quality maritime and industrial firefighting, radar, safety and U.S. Coast Guard-approved training, including full mission bridge simulator courses." This facility will ensure the future of an already strong program and provide them with ample space to expand in the future.
