Georgia Northwestern Technical College (GNTC) will hold a celebration for the first class to complete the new Fast Track Innovation Program that launched in October. The celebration will take place in Room 623B of the Northwestern Georgia College and Career Academy on Friday at 3 p.m.
The 10-week program – developed by the Northwest Regional Commission, GNTC, and Governor’s Office of Workforce Development – is being offered to individuals selected by participating companies. The program is aimed at providing technicians with on-the-job training for employment in the flooring industry and was developed at the request of industry leaders in the Dalton area.
Partner companies include Beaulieu of America; Engineered Floors, LLC; J+J Flooring Group; Mohawk Industries; and Shaw Industries Group, Inc.
The partner companies selected qualified individuals to participate in the training, which included hands-on instruction, classroom teaching, computer-based learning, and lab instruction at GNTC. The program is funded by a grant from the State of Georgia.
The celebration will recognize the first class to complete the program and present participants with a Certificate of Completion.
