Two new professional development courses at Burlington County College (BCC) come with a guaranteed job interview with Radwell International Inc., a worldwide and growing automation company based in Lumberton, NJ.
The two courses, Electronic Repair Technician and Industrial Automation, will be offered at BCC’s Mount Laurel campus starting in January to meet the need for skilled workers in this industry.
“Burlington County College has worked with Radwell International extensively to provide training to their employees,” said Roy Miller, Associate Dean of BCC’s Corporate College and Workforce Development. “Radwell is a great partner and an industry leader. The training we are offering is an incredible opportunity for those who have a basic electronics background or industrial sales, quality control, logistics or operations knowledge and are interested in entering the advanced manufacturing field.”
Radwell employs approximately 600 people and has locations in Lumberton NJ, the United Kingdom and Canada. Radwell is the largest provider of new, repair and surplus industrial electrical and electronic control equipment in the world. As its customer base continues to expand so does its needs for qualified workers. Radwell is looking to hire about 115 people in the coming year.
“Successful completion of this training at Burlington County College can get someone fast tracked for potential employment at our company,” Vice President of Customer Relations and Quality, John Radwell said. “Not all who complete the course will be hired, as we hire only the best people. But these courses are designed specifically around the skills needed to perform well.”
“This is a great example of how Burlington County College is partnering with industry leaders to help people find jobs,” said BCC President David Hespe. “Preparing the workforce for in-demand jobs is an important part of the college’s mission.
“This arrangement benefits the college, Radwell International, and most importantly, job seekers who will receive excellent training and an interview with one of the most successful employers in the region.”
