Public Meetings for Lean Manufacturing Program
Dorchester County residents who were unable to attend the public meeting on Saturday, June 2nd will have two additional opportunities to attend a public information meeting and learn more about the lean manufacturing program.
Dorchester County is implementing the program in support of existing industries to fill the labor pipeline with qualified applicants who lack manufacturing experience. The certificate serves as the equivalent of one year of manufacturing experience. This unique training will equip one hundred Dorchester County residents who have never worked in industry with a basic, entry-level understanding of the manufacturing process.
Public Information Meetings
Dorchester County residents who are interested in enrolling in the program must attend one of three drop-in meetings. Two meetings have already been held. The first meeting was held on Saturday, June 2nd at Summerville High School and the 2nd meeting was held on Saturday, June 23rd at Ashley Ridge High School.
One additional meeting will be held on June 30th at Woodland High School. Registration is required.
