Advanced manufacturing program helps long-term unemployed

A new training program run by the Region 4 Workforce Board and Purdue Polytechnic Institute Lafayette, in collaboration with local manufacturers, is designed to prepare people who’ve been out of work for months for stable, assembly line positions.

The program, called Rapid Reemployment for Advanced Manufacturing Positions (RAMP), is funded by a $7.6 million, four-year grant from the U.S. Department of Labor.
