What is PTEC?
Richland Community College and ADM have partnered to offer a 28-week Process Operator Trainee Program to jump start careers in agricultural production. Students will learn how to become Process Operators through paid training and hands-on learning experiences.
How does the program work?
This 28-week program will begin on March 16, 2023. ADM and Richland Community College are looking to fill 16 seats for the first cohort.
Employees will spend 3 days a week working for ADM and 2 days a week at Richland Community College gaining first-hand knowledge of understanding the instruments involved on the job and how to control them.
The program will provide entry-level production specialists with an opportunity to learn the common systems used in a processing facility both on ADM’s Decatur campus and in the classroom at Richland Community College. Trainees will learn Business Unit Operations, Safety, Quality, and Process Technologies for food manufacturing.
