FREE Job Training Designed to Get Union County Residents Back to Work.

I recently had this information sent to me from Candace Watson, the Public Relations Director at the Union County Chamber of Commerce:

“Just in time for economic recovery, Columbus State Community College has partnered with the Union County Employment Resource Center, the Union County Chamber of Commerce, and local firms to offer three weeks of free training for Union County residents interested in employment in the logistics field. The training, scheduled to begin June 6, 2011, will take place at the Union County Services Center at 940 London Ave. in Marysville. Limited seating will be available. Individuals must have a high school diploma or equivalent, be legally able to work in the U.S., and successfully pass a drug screen and criminal background check. To register for an orientation, please contact Keith Wollenberg, Columbus State Community College, by calling 614-287-5845 or emailing kwollenb@cscc.edu.

“LogisticsART, which stands for Attract and Retain Talent, is a U.S. Department of Labor grant-funded program designed to train dislocated workers and unemployed individuals, as well as Veterans, in basic logistics concepts and provide them with the tools necessary to obtain employment. The training is tailored to meet the workforce needs of businesses at entry to mid-level positions within warehouse, distribution, and related logistics positions. In addition to Union County, the program is available to participants in Delaware, Fairfield, Franklin, Madison, Morrow, Licking, and Pickaway counties through February 2013.

“Benefits for individuals include a free training program, a certificate of completion, and exposure to a number of employers. Additionally, they can apply three credit hours toward other applicable educational options at Columbus State Community College. Businesses benefit by getting employees who have been pre-screened and pre-trained; therefore, reducing training and recruitment costs!”
