Ready2Create Provides Unprecedented Accessibility and Support
Plattsburgh, NY - 5/18/2021 - Ready4Real and ETS are thrilled to announce the launch of an exciting new skills training program, Ready2Create. The program, funded by New York State’s historic Workforce Development Initiative, will provide an immersive training experience for the industry’s most in-demand technical and work-readiness skills.

Ready2Create will be accessible to a wide range of community members. The new training is breaking down barriers, and providing participants with unprecedented support. Tuition is free to all participants, and support services will be provided to all qualified individuals for rent, child-care, transportation, clothing and more.

●Industry and career exploration including state-of-the-art manufacturing tours 
●Paid work experience
●Guaranteed job offer upon completion - There are over 200 open positions within the North Country’s manufacturing hub. These jobs are offering some of the highest pay rates we’ve ever seen, great benefits, career growth, and more. 

Ready2Create will also be the first program of its kind to utilize the Strand Center For the Arts’ brand-new MakerSpace. The MakerSpace has been funded through New York State and Governor Cuomo’s Downtown Revitalization initiative. Learn more about the MakerSpace and the Strand Center for the Arts at www.strandcenter.org, on Facebook and by telephone at (518)-563-1604.

Funding and incentives are provided by the Department of Labor, Empire State Development and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority.
