MSU, Businesses Get $700,000 for Job Skills Training

Dotson Iron Castings will get training for employees through a partnership with Minnesota State University and the state of Minnesota.

Minnesota State University and three businesses will share in more than $736,000 in grants aimed at tailoring training for employees.

Two local businesses, Mankato Clinic and Dotson Iron Castings, and a Twin Cities business will get training for their employees tailored for them by MSU.

Tammy Bohlke, coordinator for strategic partnerships at MSU, said the university has been active in applying for the grants in recent years and she manages 15 of the programs.

“The program is mostly for health care and manufacturing. They can be any size business. For some companies it’s the only way they can afford training. It’s made a big difference for a lot of them.”
