HONEA PATH --- Individuals who are underemployed or unemployed and those who are looking to change careers should make note of an Open House at the Watkins Community Center in Honea Path.

The QuickJobs Training Center Open House is set for Tuesday, February 8, from noon – 6:30 p.m.

QuickJobs training programs are six months or less and are designed to give individuals the skills to get back into the job market.

Tri-County’s programs include health care, business, transportation (truck driving) and manufacturing (Certified Production Technician), along with a new program, the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SC DOT) Technician Certification program, which provides the requirements an individual needs to seek certification as an SC DOT-certified inspector for work performed on construction projects. Additional programs will be added in the future to meet job training demands.

Tri-County’s representatives will be on hand to guide persons through the registration process and to answer questions about these training programs, as well as personal interest and long-term programs.  

            For more information about the Open House, contact (864) 646-1700 or log on to
