BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - A program offered through SKYCTC helps train skilled workers for good-paying jobs, while they also earn a college degree with the potential to graduate with zero student debt.

The Southcentral Kentucky Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education (SKY FAME) is a partnership of regional manufacturers whose purpose is to implement a work-and-learn style program that will create a pipeline of highly skilled workers. They partner with local educational institutions to offer the Advanced Manufacturing Technician Program (AMT).

Kelcie Richart, Campus Director at SKYCTC Franklin-Simpson Center, said, “We are going on six years of success with producing world-class maintenance technicians for our Southcentral KY region.”

A virtual recruitment event will take place February 25 to offer information to parents, students, veterans, high school college/career coaches, and community members who are interested in learning about this opportunity. Students should RSVP for the event here.
