MADISON (WKOW) -- Thousands of unemployed adults are finding they need to go back to school to compete in today's technology-based job environment.
Now, Madison College is dedicating a new Center for Adult Learning and a New Apprenticeship Center, places that train dislocated workers for high-demand jobs.
Students can choose from twelve specialty fields, including computers and welding.
Many students haven't been in a classroom in 20-30 years, and are in need of basic computer skills.
Current students range in age from 20-60 years old.
State and federal unemployment benefits cover the cost of tuition for many students.
