ROCKFORD - Eigerlab offering a new program to fast track your way into the manufacturing field.

It's designed to get skilled workers into manufacturing jobs in Rockford, something local companies say they need. And it doesn't focus on just one particular skill.

"This class will cover mechanical, electrical and hydraulic," says Mike Cobert, Assistant Director at Eigerlab. "It won't focus on any particular area because we've had such a wide variety of manufacturers in the area that we'll let them teach the student once they go to work for them."

It's a 7-week program and costs $1,900.
