FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A workforce training program that involves a partnership of manufacturers working to prepare technically skilled workers has expanded to south-central Kentucky.

Gov. Steve Beshear’s office said in a news release the Kentucky Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education program is creating a new chapter in Bowling Green. The chapter will serve the surrounding region.

The program offers apprentice-style education and training.

Beshear said it’s the seventh chapter in Kentucky, and others are expected to be added before the end of the year.

Students attend classes two days a week and work 24 hours per week for a sponsoring employer. After completing the program, students receive an associate’s degree in applied sciences. Beshear’s office said most begin full-time employment with the sponsor, while others may further their education.
