ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany Tech will soon have a new tool that will allow their students to learn using the latest technology.

Southern States ToyotaLift and Florida Lift Systems are working on donating a Forklift to Albany Tech and the companies are still trying to determine which model will be best for students to use in their lab work.

Albany Tech instructors say this will further prepare their students for a job in material handling after they graduate.

"We're always looking for qualified technicians and hopefully running through these technical training programs, they can come out and have a better foundation to go into the work force," said Brian Spray, Technical Trainer for Southern State's ToyotaLift.

The Career Center also hosted an on-site recruitment event for students interested in working with Southern States ToyotaLift.
