News release by DCC

Danville Community College (DCC) is hosting an Industrial Maintenance Training information session and open house at the Regional Center for Advanced Technology & Training (RCATT) on Thursday, September 22.

“Danville Community College is committed to providing short-term training that translates to employment opportunities in our region,” said Dr. Jerry Wallace, president of DCC. “By working with local industries, we are able to ensure that individuals who complete our Industrial Maintenance Training are educated, prepared, and confident in their new skills from the moment they are hired.”

Interested individuals will have the option to attend one of the two sessions on the 22nd: a morning session from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m., or the evening session from 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. Attendees will hear from DCC faculty and staff regarding course offerings and the application process. Industry leaders will also be present to discuss employment opportunities for those who complete the training.

“We are excited to help build a world-class team here and that begins with partners like Danville Community College,” said Nancy Frank, Tyson Foods Plant Manager, Danville. “We came to the area hoping to continue making Tyson Foods a place where you can thrive, grow and be successful. This partnership will help support rewarding technical career opportunities, and skilled, hands-on training in innovative technologies like automation and robotics. All this helps strengthen the economic viability of our local Pittsylvania community.”
