Program helps business, workers

STERLING – BEST, Inc./NCI Works and Illinois Valley Community College are seeking participants for the Accelerated Training for Illinois Manufacturing program.

The program is for individuals looking for careers in manufacturing and employers wanting job candidates with nationally-recognized safety credentials from the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council.

ATIM training is tailored to specific needs of regional employers. Tuition and other financial assistance are available to eligible individuals for training in machining, mechatronics (equipment service and repair), welding, and logistics/inventory. Ways are being tested to provide accelerated services, training, and placement of qualifying people into available skilled manufacturing jobs.

The employer involvement helps to ensure the training responds to the regional demand to fill vacancies.

Those interested in the Sterling area should contact Carrie Folken at carrie_folken@best-inc.org or Sally Pflibsen at sally_pflibsen@best-inc.org or call 815-433-4550.
