Barbara Griffin has worked her entire life and isn’t about to stop now. The problem: Learning a new skill and landing a new job at a time when most people her age are winding down their careers and looking forward to retirement is no easy task.
Then she learned about a class offered at The Centre for Women that trains, certifies and helps women find jobs in the manufacturing workforce -- for free.
“I have been receiving emails once a week from the Women’s Centre on various opportunities,” says Griffin, “(and when) I saw that particular class, I said, ‘Oh, what is that?’ So I signed up for it, and that’s how I ended up in the women in manufacturing (class).”
The class is an intensive three-week training course for women interested in becoming Certified Production Technicians (CPT). The class is hosted by the Centre in partnership with Hillsborough Community College, which identifies companies that will hire the women after they earn their certification.
