The program works to support adults in and around Fort Worth, and has recruited high-powered partners and local universities to provide adults with the ability to learn more and earn more.

“We’re so excited to welcome the new cohort to our courses this October,” said PLA Founder & CEO Earl Martin Phalen. “Our commitment to our scholars, families, and communities continues to thrive with each graduate. Those enrolling for fall courses are taking action to uplift themselves and their families, and we’re honored to be a part of that growth.”

Now a 501(c)(3), PLA University is one of the most innovative adult educational institutes in the country, created for adults seeking a no-cost certification in one or more of the following career fields: Health & Life Sciences, Information Technology, Advanced Manufacturing, Supply Chain Logistics and/or Entrepreneurship.
