ELIZABETHTON, Tenn. (WJHL) — The Tennessee College of Applied Technology is extending their training for those hoping to work in manufacturing.

According to a release from TCAT Elizabethton, the Advanced Manufacturing Technology program is planned to start in January 2020 if enough interest is shown.
