Attendees will have the opportunity to sign-up for the upcoming ManuFirstSC, formerly known as Lean Manufacturing, course that will begin on Saturday, October 13 at Trident Technical College Berkeley Campus. This 4-week course will provide the necessary training to qualify candidates for positions at industries around Berkeley County and throughout the state of South Carolina. The course is free for candidates who are Berkeley County residents.

The information session will include presentations from representatives at Trident Technical College, ReadySC, and Adult Education with Berkeley County School District.

Berkeley County worked in partnership with Trident Technical College, South Carolina Department of Commerce, Volvo Cars, and Ready SC to pilot the program in June of 2017.More than 150 people graduated from the Lean Manufacturing course, which put them on the path to employment opportunities at Volvo Cars in Ridgeville. Since then, neighboring counties have emulated the training program to provide opportunities for residents around the state with more than 600 graduates in the Tri-County area. SC Department of Commerce has rebranded the program to ManuFirstSC and will roll it out across the state by industry demand.
