On Wednesday, January 29 from noon to 2 p.m., learn about a free workforce training program in process technology at Westerly Education, 23 Friendship Street. The "Basics in Process Technology" course begins February24 and job placement assistance is included.
Skills for Rhode Island's Future representatives will be at Westerly Education Center on January 29 to interview candidates and explain the course and career prospects. Pre-registration is not required. No experience is necessary to qualify; please bring a photo ID.
The bootcamp-style training will rapidly educate students in several of the disciplines used in process technology such as chemical processing and government regulations; safety and workplace responsibilities; physical properties and determinations; chemical calculations; handling chemicals; pressure and vacuum; sampling; fluid mechanics and plumbing; computer control and monitoring systems; standard operating procedures; basic electricity; and process operations. A shortage of workers trained in process technology was the impetus for the course, which has helped more than 75 percent of its graduates land full-time work in well-paying, local jobs.
