Grantee Presentation Southwest Minnesota Private Industry Council – Sara Karbo
Industrial Maintenance Southwest Minnesota Southwest MN Private Industry Council
With nearly 70% of Minnesota’s ethanol production facilities located in the Southwest region, the primary goal of this project is to train Minnesotans to fill entry-level maintenance positions in the biofuels industry. The following partners have indicated a continual need for individuals with the fundamental skills to effectively fill industrial maintenance positions within the biofuels industry: Granite Falls Ethanol (Granite Falls), POET Biorefining (Bingham Lake), and ADM (Marshall). Goal: goal of the Industrial Maintenance certification program is to create a pathway for low-wage, low- skilled adults who are either unemployed or under-employed to enhance basic academic abilities and obtain high-demand job skills in the renewable energy industries. By integrating basic English, math and computer skills (SW ABE) with vocational skill training ( MN WEST), participants will gain skills leading to living wage jobs and a viable Partners: Minnesota West Community and Technical College Customized Training and SW Adult Basic Education along with the WorkForce Centers in SW MN.
Industrial Maintenance Classes have been held in Marshall, Worthington, Granite Falls and Benson. Served approximately 70 participants Over half of participants found jobs in the industry. Average starting wage $13.00
