Ciresi tours Western Montgomery CTC to highlight STEM, job training

HARRISBURG, April 12 – State Rep. Joe Ciresi toured Western Montgomery Career and Technology Center on Friday with Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry Secretary Jerry Oleksiak to highlight STEM and career and technical training.

“I was thrilled to see the hands-on training students are getting in fields like robotics, automation, machining and more,” said Ciresi, D-Montgomery. “It’s absolutely critical that we expose students to the careers and job opportunities that are in demand in Pennsylvania, and that we make job training available for adults as well. These are good-paying jobs that are necessary to keep our communities running, and I’ll continue to work on ways we can support these efforts.”

Ciresi served on the board of directors of the Western Montgomery CTC during his years on the Spring-Ford Area School Board.

Oleksiak highlighted Gov. Tom Wolf’s Statewide Workforce Education and Accountability proposal to provide an additional $10 million to expand access to education and training opportunities, apprenticeships and STEM careers. Read more here.
