Harrisburg, PA – On Monday, Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) Deputy Secretary for Technology and Innovation Sheri Collins joined representatives from Reading Area Community College (RACC), Johnstown Area Regional Industries (JARI), Northeastern Pennsylvania Industrial Resource Center, and other partners to provide an update on Governor Wolf’s Manufacturing PA initiative, which supports Pennsylvania’s manufacturing community through strategic partnerships while emphasizing job training to career pathways.
Bonnie Spayd, RACC’s executive director of workforce & economic development says, “RACC will use the Training to Careers Grant to develop an applied training program based on the needs of regional manufacturing employers. The program is intended to provide the necessary skills needed to work in a production environment as well as a greater understanding of the products produced, the use and benefit of the products to society, competitive pay and upward mobility opportunities that exist in manufacturing companies.”
