RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) - The U.S. Department of Labor has awarded a five-year, $41 million contract for operation of the Wind River Job Corps Center to a Utah-based management company.

The Riverton Ranger reports (https://bit.ly/1DRATzD ) that Management and Training Corporation will operate the Riverton-based center, which is scheduled to open this summer. The company operates 21 Job Corps centers nationwide.

The center will be able to serve about 260 residential students and 40 off campus students.

There will be energy, health and nursing courses, accounting and heavy truck driving. The center is part of a national training and employment program administered by the federal government to reduce employment barriers faced by disadvantaged young people ages 16 to 24.

Operators of the facility will be expected to handle administration, training, security and other services.
