Manufacturers are looking for entry level applicants who possess the skills and qualities that the Darke County Manufacturing Readiness Training program provides. The training was developed with input from local companies, and covers a broad range of subjects relevant to entry-level manufacturing positions including topics such as print reading, manufacturing processes, quality, employer expectations, and basic manufacturing math. The class is one of many new initiatives launched recently as a part of the county’s workforce development efforts in conjunction with the Partnering for Progress initiative, Edison State College, and the Greenville Career Technical Education Center. Two classes have graduated from the program to this point and have fared very well in terms of job placement.

According to the Darke County Job Center, which is handling screening of applicants for the new offering, a drug test will be administered prior to the class as well as the Test of Adult Education (TABE) which tests basic reading and math skills. The forty-hour training program is offered during the day for a one week period, Monday-Friday 8am-5pm. Aside from the class’s curriculum, features of the manufacturing readiness program include tours of manufacturing facilities, assistance with interviewing skills, and individual counseling on a variety of job-search related topics. Furthermore, upon successful completion of the training, individuals will have the opportunity to interview with local manufacturers.

The next class will begin mid-May. To schedule your appointment for the TABE test on January 2, 2013, please contact Sherry Mueller at the Darke County Job Center, 548-4132, ext. 328.
