Classes started this week at Northeastern Technical College's Marlboro County Industrial Training Center.
Classes started Monday for 16 students in the ManuFirst SC program.
The program provides 62 hours of free training in the areas of safety, quality practices and measurement, manufacturing processes and production, maintenance awareness, and OSHA-10. Those who successfully complete the training will earn a ManuFirst SC certificate.
"It is training for unemployed and underemployed populations in our service areas," said Dr. Mark Bunch, dean of workforce development and continuing education.
