Training for new jobs is available for those who qualify through the Six County Private Industry Council in south-central Utah.
The program for the new 1988-89 fiscal year, authorized through the Job Training Partnership Act, stresses providing an employment opportunity for youths 21 years of age and under, said Kirk Rickenbach of the Six County office in Richfield. They must also qualify under low-income guidelines. Officials are encouraging enrollment by recent high school dropouts, teenage parents, single heads of household, handicapped people and minorities.Those who meet requirements can be enrolled in a vocational training program at either the Sevier Valley Tech area vocational school in Richfield or Snow College in Ephraim. Tuition is paid and books will be provided. Some programs also allow necessary tools for employment.
Courses are limited to either a one or two-year program, Rickenbach said. "By working closely with the training institutes, we hope to prepare potential students with the necessary information and basic survival skills to enter and complete a training program that could lead to successful full-time, permanent employment."
Those who live in the Six County area and are interested in filing an application may contact Audia Ricketts at the Job Service office in Ephraim or Rickenbach. Counties in the Six-County area are Juab, Millard, Sanpete, Sevier, Wayne and Piute.
