Mobile Job Training Unit to Visit Cumming Library

The Georgia Mountains Regional Commission (GMRC) Mobile Training Unit will return to the Cumming Library at 585 Dahlonega Road on Tuesday, September 23. The Mobile Training Unit (MTU) will be available to the public from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.

The MTU is a unique bus-type vehicle that houses computers and training stations for jobseekers to write or refine their resumes, practice interviewing techniques, and take online skill and interest assessments.

“The MTUs have been operational for over a year and half and we have been able to assist over 1200 individuals,” says Micah Thomas, MTU Instructor with GMRC Workforce Development.

Thomas explains that the MTU operates on a regular schedule to visit nine different libraries in eight north Georgia counties, as well as making periodic visits to two other libraries in the 13-county area that GMRC serves.

We are always excited to visit the Cumming Library as the staff is both very professional and a pleasure to work with,” adds Thomas.

The GMRC offers the Mobile Training Unit as a free service for residents of north Georgia and no advance registration is required.
