Free training for in-demand jobs

09:00 AM — 12:00 PM

If you're seeking employment or wanting to make a career change, this is an opportune time as Covid-19/lockdowns have created job openings/employee shuffle, adding to pre-existing workforce shortages in specific industries. To address these employee shortages, Tri-County Literacy Council is offering three new (free) programs for adult job seekers 19+: ·         If you enjoy interacting with others and a flexible work schedule, a Cashier position might be for you (6-week program starts September 6) ·         If you like the idea of always having cash and not taking work home, consider a career as a Food and Beverage Server (6-week program starts September 12) ·         The transportation industry shortages offer many opportunities such as Truck Driver, Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Truck Mechanic, Route and Crew Scheduler, Shipper, Shipping Supervisor, and Truck Loader (5-week program starts October 24) In these pilot programs, participants practice essential skills while learning about the specific topic chosen. To augment learning, industry guest speakers share their expertise with students. Successful completion of the program will result in job placements. All persons are welcome to apply, including those with self-identified disabilities (ex: anxiety, depression, etc.). For more information, call Tri-County Literacy Council at 613-932-7161. Seats are limited.
