The new Appalachian Manufacturing Initiative at Hazard Community and Technical College will be offering classes later this fall for those wanting to earn a certificate as a Machine tool operator. AMI was awarded a grant in the amount of $99,254 by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, through a Rural Business Development Grant. The grant funds will be used to provide smart classroom and computer equipment for students at the Hazard Campus. AMI was established with the help of a $2.2 million grant from the Economic Development Agency. Because of COVID 19, part of the program will be offered online, with instructors Everette Miller and Gary Smith.
