Free Training to Help Land Life Changing Manufacturing Jobs

The Department of Workforce Development, along with Continuing Education, is conducting orientation sessions to find candidates for the free Industrial Readiness Training (IRT) classes taught at Southwest Tennessee Community College's campuses, centers, and site. Upon successful completion, in just four and a half weeks, candidates will be eligible for entry-level jobs in the fields of advanced manufacturing, logistics, and process control.

These classes were developed with some of the area's largest manufacturing employers in order to prepare workers for high demand jobs that pay a livable wage.

The IRT Orientation event will be held Saturday, December 6, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Whitehaven Center located at 3035 Directors Row, Building 6, Memphis, TN, 38131.

Attendees will need to bring a valid driver's license or state ID, a Social Security card, an updated resume, and a pay stub (if currently working) in order to register for the IRT classes.
