Upcoming no-cost worker trainings will help position Racine County residents for family-sustaining employment.

The trainings are being offered in a variety of fields, including manufacturing operation and industrial maintenance. Racine County Workforce Solutions (1717 Taylor Ave., Racine) will host two events for people to sign up for the trainings and receive more information. The events will be held:

  •  2-4 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 13.
  • 9 a.m.-noon Wednesday, Nov. 20.

The training programs will start in January 2020. Trainings are offered in part through the Wisconsin Fast Forward program, which has allocated more than $1 million to Racine County-based entities to assist with local worker training initiatives.

“With tremendous opportunities for family-sustaining jobs available in Racine County, we want all residents to be in position to benefit. Whether you are unemployed, underemployed, underpaid or just looking for a change, I encourage residents to
consider participating in these trainings and move toward a fulfilling a career,” County Executive Jonathan Delagrave said.
