Kellogg Community College encourages residents of Battle Creek to enroll in their manufacturing program by offering tuition free of charge.
Whether you feel stuck in your current job, have just joined the workforce, or found a new job after the pandemic, the first thing people always recommend is: go back to school!
Of course, when funds are low this is not always an option. And, I’m generalizing based on my own experience, I don’t think people have the time to spend 2-4 years on a new education when they need a job. now. That’s why Kellogg Community College offers a free, accelerated tuition program for those who qualify. In a recent Press release KCC announced the program at no cost and what it entails.
The Kellogg Advanced Manufacturing Assembly training program is a six-week program that begins June 21. Students will be trained Monday through Thursday from 8:15 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. during the six-week course. KCC also offers incentives and “upgrades” as they call them:
- A free laptop to give the student online learning capabilities
- Links with local employers
- Global services career coach
And more. This free training is part of KCC’s larger program, Innovative Accelerated Credentialed Training (or iACT). The initiative offers accelerated programs to train and prepare people for a number of employment needs. You can learn more about iACT, including how to get grants, here.
Those who wish to take advantage of this free manufacturing training program will need to adhere to certain income rules which are not specified in the press release. However, there is a deadline to register. If you are interested you must call 269-565-2828 before 5 p.m. on May 28.
