Do you enjoy working with your hands or working with computers? Are you interested in machining anything from nuts and bolts to heavy construction equipment? If so, you can find out more about these skills and other manufacturing career opportunities in a free Manufacturing Careers Bridge class offered by Illinois Central College this spring.
Participants will discover how manufacturing is alive and well in both large and small companies in Central Illinois and how this career fits with their individual skills and interests.
A review of the skills manufacturing employers demand in English, math, reading, computer science, and social sciences will be included. Guest speakers from manufacturing, as well as tours of local companies, will give students a real-world view of the career field.
Classes meet from 9 a.m.-noon Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays Feb. 17 through April 10 at the ICC South Campus, 225 Hanna Drive, Pekin. All books and materials will be provided. Students cannot be currently enrolled in high school and must commit to attending all classes. Preference will be given to those students who do not have a GED or high school diploma. The review of English, math, and reading skills will assist in preparing for the GED Tests®.
