    Berkeley County Announces Additional Training for Manufacturing Jobs

    Sign-up and information session scheduled August 2 at 5 p.m.

     

    MONCKS CORNER, S.C. – (Monday, July 23, 2018) Berkeley County will host an information meeting to provide training for manufacturing positions on Thursday, August 2nd at 5 p.m. The meeting will be held at Trident Technical College Berkeley Campus. It is open to Berkeley County residents looking for manufacturing jobs.

                When: Thursday, August 2 at 5 p.m.

                Where: Trident Technical College Berkeley Campus, 1001 S Live Oak Drive in Moncks Corner

                Why: Help connect Berkeley County residents with the necessary training for manufacturing positions

     

    Attendees will have the opportunity to sign-up for the upcoming Lean Manufacturing course that will begin on August 11 at Trident Technical College Berkeley Campus. This 4-week course will provide the necessary training to qualify candidates for positions at industries around Berkeley County and throughout the state of South Carolina. The course is free for candidates who are Berkeley County residents.

     

    The information session will include presentations from representatives at Trident Technical College, ReadySC, and Adult Education with Berkeley County School District.

     

    Berkeley County worked in partnership with Trident Technical College, South Carolina Department of Commerce, Volvo Cars, and Ready SC to start the pilot program in May of 2017. The pilot program saw 155 people graduate from the Lean Manufacturing course, which put them on the path to land manufacturing jobs at major industries around the County, including Volvo Cars in Ridgeville. Since then, neighboring counties have emulated the training program to provide opportunities for residents around South Carolina.
