Free manufacturing training in Rockford

ROCKFORD (WREX) -  The Rockford area continues to show job growth, as well as better employment numbers. Part of that growth is due to a renewed increase in manufacturing in the area.

The Workforce Connection held an information session Tuesday for those interested in free job training in the manufacturing field.

The Accelerated Training for Illinois Manufacturing program covers four counties in northern Illinois, putting classroom and lab work together for more than a hundred people.

"The problem has been the skill level, and that's where our grant really comes in. It helps people go from no skills to whatever skills we need," said Darryl Cummings, Atrium Grant project manager.
