A new program will offer training from the state’s technical colleges to people who have lost jobs due to the pandemic.
Governor Kristi Noem says the program, called “UpSkill,” will help people develop new skills.
Noem says all four technical colleges will offer the training at little to no cost.
Noem says the state still has a lot of job and career opportunities.
While more than sixteen thousand people are getting unemployment benefits, the state also has about sixteen thousand jobs openings listed through the state Department of Labor.
