Employees who are certified in forklift, clamp truck and reach truck operation are in demand

Put yourself in a position to be in demand at Paul D. Camp Community College where forklift, clamp truck and reach truck operator certificate courses are being held to meet the needs of the community in this growing industry.
 
“With new construction and the expansion of existing facilities, the demand for warehouse and distribution center employees is increasing every day,” said Director of Workforce Development Angela Lawhorne. “In response, the college created this non-credit course to enhance opportunities of employment in this industry.”
 
The three-day long course will be held in a couple of different sessions. The first begins Tuesday, July 11, and continues through Thursday, July 13, from 5:00 to 10:00 p.m., at the Paul D. Camp Community College Regional Workforce Development Center Conference Hall, 100 North College Drive, Franklin. Another session will be held at the same time and place from August 15 through 17.
 
Students will participate in forklift driving drills and learn OSHA safety procedures. Upon successful completion of the class, they will receive a forklift operator’s certificate and OSHA safety certificate.
 
The cost of tuition is $250. Scholarships in the amount of $200 are available. Register and pay online at pdc.augusoft.net. For more information, call the workforce office, 757-569-6050, or email workforce@pdc.edu.
