FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
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 will be offered in May and June.
Landscaping for Women is a free 16-hour class that will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays May 16, 18, 23 and 25 from 4-8pm on the LTC Environmental Campus in Cleveland. Participants will learn about workplace tool and equipment operation safety, plant propagation, plant care and maintenance, career opportunities in sustainable landscape horticulture and sustainable landscape design, installation and maintenance.
Women in EMS/Fire Science will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays June 6, 8, 13 and 15 from 6-9pm on the LTC Cleveland campus. Participants will learn about the entry-level requirements to work in the emergency medical services and fire service fields, opportunities in the emergency medical services and fire sciences fields that align with your personal interests and career opportunities for women in the emergency medical services and fire services fields.
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.
