Louisville, KY, -  In an exciting new development, Kentucky has opened a new One Stop Employment and Career Center focused exclusively on manufacturing.  This center will offer MSSC's Certified Production Technician certification beginning in August.

The Kentucky Manufacturing Career Center, which opened this week, is providing manufacturing skills training programs and English as a Second Language classes with more planned later this summer. The center is located at 160 Rochester Dr., Building W, on the campus of the Airport Industrial Center in South Louisville.

“The opening of this center comes as local manufacturers are growing and hiring more employees,” Mayor Greg Fischer said. “It’s a great opportunity to connect people still looking for a job or wanting a better job with the skills and certifications they need to succeed.”

Career counselors will help connect jobseekers with available manufacturing jobs and make sure they have the right training and skills for the work. The center also offers employers a place to post job openings and to access basic manufacturing skills training for existing employees.

“Louisville is a national leader in the revitalization of American manufacturing, and the Kentucky Manufacturing Career Center will help us continue to build on that progress,” said Congressman John Yarmuth. “Connecting workers with good jobs and employers with a well-trained workforce will help Louisville families succeed in the 21st century economy.”
