GLADE SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) — A new education-to-work program will give students hands-on experience in manufacturing while they earn a two-year degree.

The Toyota Advanced Manufacturing Technician Program is a partnership between Toyota Motor Manufacturing West Virginia and Bridgemont Community and Technical College. Kureha PGA also is participating.

Bridgemont President Jon Harris says students will attend classes two days a week and work at Toyota's plant in Buffalo, W.Va. three days a week. They will receive a starting salary of $17.78 an hour.

The first class will have 20 students.

Officials announced the program Tuesday during the West Virginia Manufacturers Association's annual meeting in Glade Springs.
