If you’re tired of dead-end jobs and want to get the training that will prepare you for jobs in manufacturing that pay between $11/hour and $25/hour, you need to attend this remaining session:

The CPT course, developed by the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council, covers modules in Safety, Quality & Measurement, Manufacturing Processes, and Maintenance Awareness. Graduates earn a nationally recognized certificate and nine college credit hours from Jefferson Community & Technical College (JCTC) to be used in manufacturing programs. Graduates also will have opportunities to be interviewed by representatives of local manufacturing companies for jobs before completing the course.

The Kentucky Manufacturing Career Center will conduct a special class for the CPT course from May 19 through June 16 (no class on May 26, Memorial Day) at the NIA Center, 2900 W.
