Senior Executive Director Diane Dettmann's Message
TCU/IAM Advanced Training continues to have a very successful year in job placement and continues to be a popular Advanced Trade in Job Corps. Our training program looks forward to the future as the transportation industry, especially in the freight railroad industry, will need many skilled workers. To meet employer demand and required industry skills, the TCU/IAM Job Corps Program is increasing program certifications and industry-standard training. Our program has a new added focus with the incorporation of our rail-mechanical program to expand on hard-skills training and increase hands-on learning through utilization of tools and equipment found in the transportation field at three of our locations.
Our program will endeavor to bring new employment opportunities across the nation to our students in the areas of aviation, machinist, and manufacturing.
We would like to thank our wonderful employer partners for the strong relationships we have established over the years. We are most appreciative of the consideration they give our graduates in offering them jobs in high-wage, high-growth entry-level positions. We are proud to be a part of the Job Corps community as we work together to build a strong American workforce for tomorrow.
TCU/IAM's Training Services Department administers the Job Corps Advanced Transportation Training at nine facilities nationwide. Overseeing the work of the TCU/IAM department is National Vice President David Steele.
