New Hampshire Governor John Lynch has announced the start of an advanced manufacturing training program, which will provide 150 displaced workers with an accelerated apprenticeship program and guaranteed jobs in two companies.
The Skills Through Apprenticeship and Retraining program is being founded through a nearly $2 million grant awarded to the state from the U-S Department of Labor.
The program offers workers an accelerated, two-year advanced manufacturing apprenticeship while being employed Hypertherm of Hanover, or Timken of Lebanon.
At the same time, these workers will earn college credits from River Valley Community College on Claremont, which can be applied towards an associate’s degree.
The program is open to workers from New Hampshire and Vermont.
