Moraine Park is combating the skilled worker shortage by launching manufacturing skills academies in a series of 15-week boot camps. A consortium of partnering businesses including Integrity Saw & Tool, Inc., MIBA Industrial Bearings U.S. LLC, Mid-States Aluminum Corporation and Signicast, are providing this unique training opportunity to potential candidates. Participants will gain entry-level skills in this exciting and growing field, while allowing them to earn credits toward a degree. In addition to skill development, the program includes a paid internship to get hands-on experience that will hopefully lead to a job offer plus a $500 student stipend to assist with expenses. The boot camp will provide essential skills to last a lifetime. Fill out the form to the right to get signed up to learn more and get started!
