Gadsden Mayor Sherman Guyton on Tuesday announced a series of free training classes for local industries.
Guyton said the idea for the classes came from the Workforce Development Partnership that includes the city; the Bevill Center and the Alabama Technology Network; Gadsden State Community College; and Gadsden City Schools.
“The program is to say thank you to the companies for what they do for our community,” Guyton said.
“We appreciate all the work Gadsden State and ATN do in Gadsden,” Guyton said. “Every day, they assist existing industry with engineering technology and workforce development, and they also help the Gadsden Industrial Development Authority and state agencies.”
Local firms will be notified about the classes being offered at the Bevill Center during the first two weeks in November. Twenty-two different classes are being offered in a variety of areas, including motor controls, alignment, robotics and basic hydraulics.
