[July 21, 2014]  Heartland Community College, the Accelerated Training for Illinois (ATIM) program, and the Lincoln/Logan County Development Partnership announce a 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.

Informational sessions for this special training program will be held from July 30 through August 7 on the following specific dates:

  • July 30 & August 7, 1:30 pm at Illinois workNet Center, 1300 S Ninth St, Springfield.
  • July 31, 11:00 a.m. at the Heartland Community College Downtown Center 620 Broadway, Lincoln.
  • August 5, 10 a.m. at the Workforce Development Center, Heartland Community College, 1500 Raab Rd, Normal.
  • August 6, 1 p.m. Illinois Central College-South Campus, Room 202 225 Hanna Dr., Pekin.
  • August 7, 10:30 a.m. at the Clinton Campus Building Richland Community College, 140 Sunrise Court, Clinton.

Training is anticipated to begin September 2.
