North Central Missouri College in Trenton is offering industrial maintenance and manufacturing skills training tuition-free for individuals who qualify. These programs are funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Labor.
Accelerated training classes will begin August 19 and last 16 weeks. They are designed to lead to industry-based credentials as well as eventual college certificates. Tuition is free for those who qualify; however, students will be responsible for any books, student fees, lab fees, or other required supplies.
Informational meetings about these training programs will be held during the next few weeks at vocational schools in Bethany and Brookfield as well as at NCMCâ€™s Barton Farm Campus near Trenton.
The meetings in Bethany will be at the North Central Career Center, located at 1401 Daily Road, on Thursday, July 25 and Wednesday, August 7. In Brookfield, the meetings will be at the Linn County Area Career and Technical Center at 122 Pershing Road on Tuesday, July 30 and Thursday, August 8.
In Trenton, there will be only one meeting at the Barton Campus (96 SE 8th Avenue), which is set for Monday, July 29. All are on a come-and-go basis from 4 to 7 p.m. Pre-registration is not required.
