FLCC offers info session on job training, eligibility for free tuition

By on August 6, 2018

Finger Lakes Community College will hold an orientation session for the six-month advanced manufacturing machinist job training program on Tuesday, August 14, at 9 a.m. at G.W. Lisk Co., 39 Pearl St. in Clifton Springs.

G.W. Lisk partners with FLCC to provide training in the operation of modern mills and lathes to fashion precision components for automotive, military and medical uses. Due to high demand in the Rochester-Finger Lakes region for advanced manufacturing skills, graduates typically have a job offer or interview within a week of completing a program. The class runs from September through March.

Local businesses looking for inexpensive ways to help their workers upgrade skills are also encouraged to send employees to the August 14 session. A federal workforce development grant covers full tuition for those who meet eligibility requirements, which will be covered at the session.

Registration is required. Sign up online at flcc.edu/pdce, via email at pdce@flcc.edu or phone at (585) 785-1670.

The classes require a high school diploma and are open to all ages, from recent high school graduates to older workers who have been displaced or are seeking work with advancement potential.
