Through a collaboration with Greenville Technical College, free scholarships for manufacturing and production workforce training are currently available at Foothills Family Resources in Slater-Marietta.
The program offers technician certifications that can open career opportunities in fields like mechatronics, welding and CNC machining, according to David Bolton, Foothills Family Resources executive director.
“Partnering with Greenville Tech to bring job training to this region is not only exciting, but fits perfectly into our Center for Working Families program as it’s goal is not only to help people find work, but start rewarding careers,” Bolton said. “Greenville County is a national leader in manufacturing and the perfect opportunity for someone interested in starting a career that leads to financial security.”
Applicants can be career-ready as early as July, with average starting salaries of $12 per hour, Bolton said.
To be eligible, applicants must be at least 18 years old, hold a GED/HS diploma and be a US citizen/legal resident.
