Gavilan College Is Growing! A lot has been happening at Gavilan College, and the community will soon see new facilities in new places. Construction is underway at the Coyote Valley Educational Center. Phase I will consist of five modular buildings and a parking area. In addition to a variety of evening classes, this site will become the new home of the South Bay Regional Public Safety Training Consortium. Classes in public safety and a variety of college subjects are expected to begin at the new site in Fall 2016. Land has also been purchased for a future campus in San Benito County. Also in the works is a new site at the San Martin Airport for the Aviation Maintenance Technology (AMT) program. Currently housed on the Gilroy campus, the Aviation Maintenance program prepares students for careers in aviation mechanics, aircraft service, repair or sales of aircraft accessories, and airframe specialist. Once the program moves into the new, centrally located site (expected in Fall 2016), it will be able to accommodate twice as many students. For more information about the AMT program, go to gavilan.edu/catalog/2015-2017/ degrees/Gavilan_Degree_AMT.pdf The Coyote Valley site will be especially convenient to the northern section of the Gavilan Joint Community College District (the district extends from Bernal Road in San Jose through most of San Benito County).
