Wood, Sandusky, Ottawa, Seneca Community Action recently announced future earnings of $2,074,769 as a subcontractor for Northwest State Community College.
"It is a training agreement targeting long-term unemployed and underemployed," said Joyce Huntley, WSOS Director of Public Relations.
The agreement includes a 16-week course, plus 18 weeks on the job training that will be provided by WSOS, she said.
"This is designed to benefit someone with a four-year degree, but who still has to work as a waitress," Huntley said. "We will train American workers in technical skills so American businesses don't have to take their jobs overseas."
In this four-year agreement, WSOS will assist with recruitment, assessments, on-going case management, retention services and job placement, a press release stated.
The college is located in Archbold, received funding earlier this year from the U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration Technical Skills Training grant.
The college chose the Fremont-based WSOS organization to apply the grant.
The purpose of the grant is to provide area residents with training in computer skills such as Oracle Certified Associate Java SE, Oracle Certified Associate MySQL, International Computer Drivers license and SAP Crystal Reports certificate.
Huntley said a prerequisite for participants is a working knowledge of Microsoft Word, Excel and Access.
