FERDINAND — Best Home Furnishings will host an upholstery training class free of charge to the general public. The classes will be held from 8 to 11 a.m. Feb. 29 at Best’s main campus in Ferdinand.
“We are creating a way to introduce people to new skills that could lead to high-paying career opportunities in the local economy without having to leave their current job,” said Best Home Furnishings President Brian Lange.
Best’s Upholstery Training Program will be led by experienced upholsterers, and will flow at a pace that will be comfortable to the individual’s learning level. The class is being offered to participants with few preconditions. No prior upholstery experience, degree or manufacturing certificate is required. Participants must be at least 16 years old, and must be able to perform the essential functions of upholstery with or without reasonable accommodations.
People interested in participating, or who just want to learn more, can call 812-367-0367, text BestHF to 31996 for easy registration or visit BestHF.com/UTP for full details.
The Feb. 29, leap-day timing is also part of the event’s theme. Lange added, “What a great chance to leap into a new career skill in just three hours on leap day. Don’t hesitate. Take the leap!”
