ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A company that formerly operated the Turner Job Corps Center will be taking over the training center again.

The Department of Labor (DOL)  awarded the contract to Management and Training Corporation (MTC) to begin operating Turner Job Corps starting in April.

Every five years, the DOL allows companies like MTC to bid for the centers. 

MTC will now operate all three Job Corps Center in Georgia, joining the Atlanta and Brunswick centers.

The company isn't new to South Georgia, they operated the center nearly 15 years ago

Turner Job Corps has 732 students, providing career training for young people.

"We're really just going to be working in the community, working with the career centers and just trying to make sure that. We want to have more South Georgia enrolled in a center," said MTC South Central Region VP Tom Fitzwater. 

William Coleman was named the new center director for Turner Job Corps, and will be coming to Albany from the Hubert Humphrey Job Corps in St. Paul, Minnesota.
