College Develops Program for Aluminum Mill.

ASHLAND, Ky. (AP) -- A college in Kentucky is developing special programs to train workers for an aluminum mill planned for construction in an area along the Ohio River.

The Daily Independent reports Ashland Community and Technical College plans to develop two specialized course programs for Braidy Industries after company and state officials recently announced initial details about a mill scheduled for completion in 2020.

Braidy CEO Craig Bouchard says the ACTC-developed program will include associate degrees in science and manufacturing in addition to creating a pipeline of talent for the plant and future business in Greenup County. Both ACTC and Braidy officials expect to meet as early as summertime to begin planning.

The mill is expected to create more than 500 jobs and will produce aluminum for the automotive and aerospace industries.
