BCI Skills Center's Manufacturing Employment Classes
BCI Skills Center—a first-of-its-kind vocational training facility for adults with disabilities that partners with local businesses to create custom programs—will hold its spring Manufacturing class beginning Mon., March 23 through Fri., May 15. The eight-week class is open to a total of 10 students, five for the morning session from 7:30 to 10:30 a.m. and five in the afternoon from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Upon graduation, students move directly into production team member positions at True Manufacturing where their starting salary is $13.75 per hour. True Manufacturing, which is located in St. Peters, Mo., is a leader in the commercial refrigeration industry. The company has generously donated all the equipment to BCI Skills Center to create this program and replicate its work setting.
Students will learn how to perform final preparation tasks, unit and cabinet assembly and subassembly of True’s commercial refrigeration units. Students will master various in-demand soft skills such as effective communication with supervisors and peers, time management, independent work, and interviewing skills. Cammie Shepherd, Community Employment Supervisor at BCI Skills, is the instructor for the class.
