WINSTED, MN – A new training center through Dunwoody College of Technology might be in Winsted’s future, and business owners throughout the region plan to learn more about this possibility Tuesday, March 18.
During a luncheon meeting at Winsted City Hall, Trevor Millerbernd, CEO of Millerbernd Manufacturing, will present information about the program and discuss how a new training center would benefit the local labor market. A representative from Dunwoody will also be available to answer questions.
According to Winsted Area Chamber of Commerce President Jeff Campbell, the training center in Winsted would serve the rural areas of Wright, McLeod, Carver, and Meeker counties.
“We understand the current gap in skilled workers present in today’s labor market,” Campbell noted. “This training center will strive to close this gap by providing valuable technical skills taught through accelerated courses.”
The center would provide students and incumbent workers the option to live at home and easily commute to the training facility. Curriculum would be customizable, and would lead graduates to local job placement.
In order for the training center to move forward, it will need recommendations and financial support from regional business partners.
Business owners who are interested in becoming a partner are encouraged to attend the Tuesday, March 18 luncheon meeting, which will take place at noon in the Vollmer Room in Winsted City Hall. To RSVP, contact Jeff Campbell at email@example.com or at (612) 554-7439.
