From Joanna Hlavacek’s article on the Lawrence Journal-World website:
A new program slated to launch next fall at Lawrence’s Peaslee Technical Training Center will offer educational opportunities — and certification — for those looking to enter the field of automotive technology.
Peaslee leaders met with partners from Johnson County Community College, Lawrence Public Schools, The Chamber and local car dealerships to discuss the program Monday at the technical center, 2920 Haskell Ave.
The program is the realization of one of several long-term Peaslee goals to expand its training to areas such as electrical and plumbing. Instructors from JCCC will lead the classes, which will be open to both high school students and adults.
