North American Lighting, Inc. and Lake Land College partnership informational meeting a success

About 100 people gathered at the Lake Land College Eastern Region Center in Marshall Tuesday evening to learn more about a unique employment opportunity with North American Lighting, Inc.

The NAL Fast-Track Tech Program is an eight-week training course that guarantees employment at NAL upon completion of the program.  Lake Land College and North American Lighting (NAL) officials shared details and answered questions about the partnership that was created to help NAL find qualified technicians.

“We were extremely pleased with the turn out this evening,” Jim Jamrozek, North American Lighting training and development manager, said. “We plan to hire 300 new employees in the next year and quite frankly, we haven’t been able to find qualified people. This program will provide us with a group of trained technicians who can begin contributing to our production needs within a few months.” 

North American Lighting will screen applications that were submitted Tuesday evening and ask qualified applicants to the company for a background check, drug test and hiring process. Fifteen of those who successfully complete this process will be invited to begin the Lake Land College training program on Oct. 7. 

A new class will begin every 8 weeks. The training program will simulate a plant environment with instructors acting as supervisors and students working in teams to solve problems and troubleshoot equipment. 

“You will be learning together in a group setting,” Lake Land Instructor Brian Haskins said.

Students will attend class from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The program will provide students with a variety of industrial technology skills including shop safety, applied mathematics, and robotics and automation control. Upon completion of the LLC program, students will enter into a nine-week paid training program at NAL. Entry-level employees earn between $16-18 an hour, plus benefits, depending on skill level. NAL currently has technician positions available at all of three Illinois manufacturing facilities in Flora, Salem and Paris.

All interested applicants must have their high school diploma or GED and apply to the program. The cost of the program is $1,772.80. Financial aid is available to those who qualify. Additional payment options such as FACTS payment plan and assistance from CEFS may be possible. Interested students are encouraged to complete the FAFSA at www.FAFSA.gov as soon as possible to learn if they qualify for financial aid. 

For more information about the program, or to apply, contact Becky Earp, administrative assistant for academic services at (217) 234-5220 or visit www.lakelandcollege.edu and look for the NAL Fast Track Tech Program link under Special Events.
