The Lincoln Manufacturing Council is proud to announce our first class application for our Manufacturing Tech program! The Lincoln Manufacturing Council includes 10 Lincoln manufacturers that are hiring in our community.

The 6-week class includes information about measurement, reading work orders, manufacturing workplace protocols and more! The final class will be a career fair giving students an opportunity to interview and be considered for a position. The class will be taught by a Kawasaki master trainer. Classes will run 5:30 - 7:30 pm at Lincoln High on November 6, 13, 20 and December 6 with the career fair on December 13.
Benefits to the class include:
The class is free for accepted students. Students must attend all sessions to earn the certificate and stipend. Basic English skills are required to understand the instruction and complete the tasks. A total of 12-15 students will be accepted. There will be future sessions of the class, and anyone not selected for this class will be considered for the next class.

Lincoln was selected as one of eight communities in the country for the Skilled Immigrant Integration Program grant from Washington DC-based, WES. The goal of the effort is to reconnect refugee and immigrant professionals to their careers through work and education placement. For example, an air traffic controller from Iraq or a veterinarian from the Sudan. This effort is co-led by LPED, Nebraska Appleseed, Asian Community and Cultural Center, Civic Nebraska, Southeast Community College and the City of Lincoln. The group is creating maps to visually illustrate the process of becoming educated and certified in the United States for teachers, engineers, lawyers, medical professionals and accountants.
