Dorchester County to Host Public Meetings for the ManuFirstSC™ Program

Post Date:06/13/2019 10:00 AM

The Dorchester County Economic Development Department will hold three drop-in public information meetings for residents interested in participating in the ManuFirstSC™ Certificate Program, formerly known as Lean Manufacturing.

Dorchester County implemented the program in January 2018, 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 equips program participants with a basic, entry-level understanding of the manufacturing process. 

Dorchester County residents who are interested in enrolling in the 4-week program must attend one of below drop-in meetings to sign-up for the upcoming ManuFirstSC™ Certificate Program:

  • Tuesday, June 18, 6:00 PM at the Ridgeville Community Center
  • Thursday, June 20, 6:00 PM at Woodland High School
  • Monday, July 1, 6:00 PM at the Dorchester County Library – St. George Branch

Classes will begin on Saturday, July 13 at the Dorchester County QuickJobs Training Center in St. George. For more information on the public meetings and/or the ManuFirstSC™ Certificate Program please contact Dorchester County Economic Development at (843) 875-9109.
