LINCOLN - Individuals
interested in a free training program designed to
prepare them for jobs with local, Logan County
manufacturers are invited to attend an information
session at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, August 27th at the
Heartland Community College center in downtown Lincoln.
The program is offered to people in Logan County who are
unemployed or under-employed.
Heartland Community College, the Accelerated Training for
Illinois Manufacturers (ATIM) program, and the Lincoln/Logan County
Development Partnership have collaborated to design and deliver this
special manufacturing skills training program for qualifying
individuals in Logan County and throughout Central Illinois. The
program selects individuals to receive “paid for” specialized
training based on the needs of local employers. This training is in
response to the growing “skills gap” identified by area
manufacturers. The training program focuses on industry recognized
skill training, as well as on-the-job training designed to produce
employees who are ready for work on day one.
Training is anticipated to begin in early September.
Prior work experience in manufacturing is helpful, but not required.
Financial support for the ATIM program is provided by the Illinois Department of
Commerce and Economic Opportunity using federal Workforce Investment Act (WIA)
