FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr to Visit Learning Alliance Corporation
Tampa, Florida — July 13, 2021 — Learning Alliance Corporation (LAC) will be hosting Commissioner Brendan Carr of the Federal Communications Commission on July 14, 2021. During his visit, Commissioner Carr will climb a cell tower with LAC students. He will then be heading to the LAC campus in Tampa to tour the facilities and address the LAC students and local business leaders. While on campus, Commissioner Carr will be introduced to several new and ongoing LAC projects and will observe the student’s hands-on training.
LAC will be showcasing its augmented reality and videogame projects. Commissioner Carr will be able to see how emerging technologies allow for increased safety while providing virtual hands-on training. With Microsoft HoloLens, future students will be able to interact virtually with much of the same equipment they will eventually use in their future telecommunications careers, according to LAC.
Learning Alliance CEO and Owner Cesar Ruiz will also address those in attendance. He intends to cover telecom workforce development, industry educational needs, and LAC’s involvement in the NextTech Diversity Program.
