Looking for a new direction? CNC bootcamp might be the right way to go, and applications are now available for the program beginning in January.

“Boot Camps have successfully provided qualified candidates who have the skills our local manufacturers are searching for. These Boot Camp graduates have over a 90% placement rate,” County Executive Jim Ladwig said in a written statement.

Workforce Development and Gateway Technical College have been partnering since 2005 to offer short-term training programs that lead to real-world job placement. The bootcamp program is sponsored by SC Johnson.

CNC bootcamp runs five days a week for 14 weeks; from Jan. 5 to April 10, 2015. Students who complete the program receive a completion certificate, college credit and job placement assistance.

Applications are available until 5 p.m. Nov. 17 at both Workforce Development locations in Racine (1717 Taylor Ave.) and Burlington (496 McCanna Parkway) and online as well. The deadline to return completed applications is 5 p.m. Dec. 3.

Interested candidates must be 18 years old and a resident of Racine County.

For more information about the bootcamp program, call Todd Nienhaus at (262) 638-6541 or visit the Racine County Workforce Development Center’s website at http://www.wdc.racineco.com.
