Recently the Pine Knot Job Corps Center hosted a luncheon to showcase the developing skills of their automotive students and provide updates on the center located in McCreary County.
The students are part of the Maintenance and Light Repair training program specializing in automotive and machine repair. This is a Pre-Apprenticeship program that offers students the hands-on training and education needed to qualify for apprenticeships. Learn more about the program.
The Pine Knot Job Corps Civilian Conservation Center is a tuition-free training and education program that connects eligible young men and women with the skills and educational opportunities they need to establish real careers.
