Mike Tanner - March 1, 2017
WATERTOWN, S.D. — Lake Area Technical Institute is teaming up with the Brookings Economic Development Corporation and Vision Brookings on a unique partnership.
As part of LATI’s “Learn Where You Earn” initiative, the three entities will collaborate and expand on LATI’s presence in Brookings, enhancing the delivery of expanded education, workforce education and training programming.
Like many South Dakota communities, Brookings is facing a shortage of workers in high-demand, technically skilled fields.
LATI President Mike Cartney says the school’s mission is to, “improve South Dakota’s technically skilled workforce pipeline. We recognize the needs of Brookings and see this initiative as a way to assist in addressing those needs.”
