FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (By Lisa Garrett)

EASLEY --- Persons who are underemployed or unemployed and those who are looking to change careers should make note of next week’s Open House at the new QuickJobs Training Center on Tri-County Technical College’s new Easley Campus.

The QuickJobs Open House is set for Tuesday, January 18, from noon – 6:30 p.m. at the Easley QuickJobs Training Center located at 1774 Powdersville Road in Easley.
QuickJobs training programs are six months or less and are designed to give individuals the skills to get back into the job market.

Tri-County’s programs include health care (certified nurse aide, Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), hospital and medical coding), transportation (truck driving), warehousing, web design, customer service and manufacturing (Certified Production Technician), along with Computer Technician Certification, and woodworking. Additional programs will be added in the future to meet job-training demands.

Another new program is the SC Department of Transportation (DOT) Technician Certification program, which provides the requirements an individual needs to seek certification as an SC DOT-certified inspector for work performed on construction projects.

Tri-County’s representatives will be on hand to guide persons through the registration process and to answer questions about these training programs, as well as personal interest and long-term programs.

The QuickJobs Training Center, which opened September 20, 2010, is designed to assist in workforce training and skills development for the College and for Pickens County. The QuickJobs Training Center is funded through a $986,364 grant from the State Department of Commerce to Pickens County. Instructors from Tri-County’s Corporate and Community Education Division will teach training courses specifically based on locally identified needs and shortages.

For more information about the Open House, contact 646-1700 or log on to www.tctc.edu/learn.
