Ready to Work

The Ready to Work program is the first of its kind in the State of Tennessee.  It consists of eight four-hour sessions taught over a four week period.  Each session focuses on hard and soft skills necessary for productive manufacturing team members.  Sessions are taught by local training providers and industry professionals.  Individuals successfully completing the training will be given enhanced employment opportunities as well as a certificate of completion.  The curriculum was created with the direction of local manufacturers and with the assistance of the Tennessee College of Applied Technology Athens, The Tennessee Career Center, and McMinn County Adult Basic Education.  For more information on the Ready to Work program, please contact the Tennessee College of Applied Technology at (423) 744-2814.
