CLEVELAND, WI – 

Lakeshore Technical College will be offering the opportunity to explore non-traditional occupation opportunities through free exploration classes.   NTO exploration classes are designed to give women the opportunity to experience "hands-on learning" in fields that have traditionally had few females in their ranks and that may offer higher pay and greater satisfaction.  Exploration classes in the areas of industrial maintenance and automotive maintenance will be offered in February and March.

 

Introduction to Industrial Maintenance Skills is a free 16-hour class that will be held on Thursdays, February 19 and 26 and March 5 and 12 from 4:30-8:30pm.  Participants will learn about workplace safety and tools, the terms and skills used in industrial maintenance, career opportunities in the industrial maintenance field and an introduction to math, precision measurements, blueprint reading, hand and power tools, mechanical fasteners, pumps, PVC pipe and copper tubing, motor wiring and more.

 

Introduction to Automotive Maintenance Skills is a free 16-hour class that will be held on Mondays, March 23 and March 30 and Tuesdays, March 24 and March 31 from 5-9pm.  Participants are asked to bring their own car and will have the opportunity to learn to perform safety inspections on a vehicle, use the latest diagnostic equipment and tools unique to the auto repair industry, perform needed repairs or maintenance on a vehicle and explore career opportunities in the automotive maintenance field.

 

Space is limited.  Preregistration is required and may be completed at www.gotoltc.edu/nto or call LTC Sheboygan at 920.208.5888 or LTC Manitowoc at 920.683.2846 for more information.
