EUGENE, Ore. -- In this week's Skilled to Work, KEZI is partnering with employers in our area to address the lack of workers for skilled jobs in the construction and manufacturing fields.
Right now the demand for knowledgable and skilled workers has never been greater. That's why Lane Community College is offering three new summer courses for trade skills fundamentals, manufacturing, and welding courses.
LCC is partnering up with companies like Johnson Crushers International and Lane Workforce Partnership to get more students enrolled in these courses.
General Manager of Johnson Crushers International Avril Watt said these courses are essential to the basic understanding needed to be successful in industries like these. Watt also said her company and others are thrilled to get students back into the facilities after nearly 18 months.
"It's kind of exciting to be able to get back into that a little bit as well because that allows us to show someone where they would or could land after taking classes like this at LCC," said Watt.
Courses start June 21 and go to Sept. 2. Each course needs a minimum of 15 students enrolled.
