Guaranteed Jobs Free Training Program for Detroiters

Mayor Kilpatrick on Thursday promoted two new Detroit Workforce Development Centers that provide free training directly linked to guaranteed jobs.
The Health Care Career Center, in downtown Detroit, has partnered with the Oakland University School of Nursing for 10-week training courses that will enable graduates to become certified nursing assistants at the Detroit Medical Center.
The city hopes to get 300 people through the program by year-end.
On the east side, the Hospitality/Retail Career Center, working with Wayne County Community College and Goodwill Industries, will train people to work at CVS pharmacies. The city hopes 500 people will move through that program by year's end.

For more information Detroiters interested in one of the new training programs should contact the Detroit Workforce Development Department at (313) 962-9675 or visit the Web site
