Anderson Mayor Thomas Broderick Jr. has announced a new program designed to prepare local residents for manufacturing jobs. Our partners at The Herald Bulletin report the Anderson Advanced Manufacturing Program looks to connect local commercial and manufacturing businesses, economic development leaders and the local education system.

AAMP will launch in April at Purdue Polytechnic Institute and will be a 160-hour course over a four-week period. The publication reports AAMP training slots are paid positions and will pay $1,600 for the entire program. For the first three months, there will be up to 30 applicants accepted each month.
