More than 100 people will receive workforce training due to $500,000 secured by Congressman Brett Guthrie.

The training will be provided by Team Taylor County in partnership with Campbellsville University's Technology Training Center.

Ron McMahan, executive director of Team Taylor County, said the offerings are tailored to local needs.

"We surveyed local businesses to determine what their immediate training needs were, and now Congressman Guthrie will help us meet these needs because of these funds," McMahan stated. "Many thanks to Congressman Guthrie for helping us prepare our local workforce."

According to Carol Sullivan, director of the training center, four types of training will be offered. Lean Six Sigma certification offers advanced problem-solving techniques. Programmable Logic Control provides assembly line equipment maintenance training. Workplace Health and Safety provides a comprehensive course on creating and maintaining a safe and healthy workplace. Workplace Skills offers training on enhancing employability and expanding workplace skills.

"I am pleased to secure funding to support job training initiatives in Taylor County," Guthrie stated in a press release. "With a growing unemployment rate, it is important that we invest in our workforce to make sure they are trained to meet the demands of the 21st century economy."
