Free job training offered to Harford County students for in-demand jobs
Simulator technology is being offered for free job training in Harford County at a new training center in Edgewood.
A simulator with different programs helps Harford Community College students to get their commercial driver’s license and learn how to use construction equipment.
“We don’t want the first time for someone to be introduced to something to be a live-action situation. So, the simulator allows them to learn and develop that muscle memory, develop that confidence prior to them getting out into the real world,” said Austin Hill, director of strategic partnerships at Harford Community College.
The brand-new equipment at Harford Community College’s Leading Edge Training Center is powered by the Ratcliffe Foundation. Located at the Edgewood campus of the Boys and Girls Club, free training is being offered in construction trades, manufacturing, logistics and warehousing.
