Ranken Technical College’s new Manufacturing Inc. facility is moving forward. The $6M, 25,000 sq. ft. facility will be home for Ranken’s Microenterprise Program where students “learn and earn” while working for several of the area’s largest and most successful businesses. Ranken’s microenterprise concept provides students an integrated work-based experience which provides work experience, industrial training, certifications, college credit and/or part time salary. The operation will directly support pre-apprentice training, apprenticeship training and entrepreneurial start-ups, as well established industries. The building is slated to be complete in October of 2019.
