On Friday, August 20, Secretary Gassman visited the Antigo campus of Northcentral Technical College (NTC), where she announced a $151,830 Wisconsin Industry Partnership grant to train workers for the north central region’s transportation sector. The sector is expected to add more than 250 jobs by 2014. Secretary Gassman awarded the grant to the North Central Wisconsin Workforce Development Board, DWD’s regional partner which proposed the Transportation Supportive Workforce project. The board worked with seven employers in the transportation sector to develop the project. NTC will provide training for workers and job seekers in the transportation sector.
Secretary Gassman announced the grant during a visit to NTC’s East Campus in Antigo as part of Governor Doyle’s "Up North" Tour.
