[August 26, 2014]  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) funds.
