Skills Program Aids Transitioning Military

The Commonwealth Center for Advanced Manufacturing (CCAM) and Southside Virginia Community College are offering a free course to train veterans or transitioning military members as computer numeric controlled machinists.

“This is a huge opportunity worthy of consideration,” Bruce Sobczak, director of workforce development at CCAM, a Prince George County-based research consortium between industry and university researchers, said in a statement. “A lot of job openings exist in this area, and the need for qualified workers is enormous.”
