[April 25, 2014]  Logan County manufacturers are invited to attend a Manufacturer's Council meeting to learn about a program that can help provide them access to qualified job candidates for high-demand occupations. The meeting will be on Wednesday from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. at Eaton Corp., 1725 1200th Ave., Lincoln.

As manufacturers increase production, expand operations and replace an aging workforce, they are faced with the challenge of finding workers with the right skills. There is currently a mismatch between the skills job seekers have and the skills required for today's manufacturing.

The "Accelerated Training for Illinois Manufacturing" program is designed to address this skills gap. ATIM provides short-term training for jobs currently available with area manufacturers, including certified production technicians, welding technicians, CNC operators and technicians, and industrial maintenance.

The training provided by the ATIM program also prepares individuals to earn industry credentials in several areas, including a safety certificate from the Manufacturing, Skill Standards Council and certification from the American Welding Society or National Institute for Metalworking Skills. ATIM training leads to work-ready individuals using newly acquired skills at paid internships.
