Rivian welcomes first group of students for technical training program.

Rivian has announced a 16-week foundational training program that will take place at its plant in Normal, Illinois. The program offers on-the-job learning from professionals at the automaker.

After completing the program, the students will return to Georgia to apply their training at the upcoming Rivian factory, which is set to build the next-generation R2 platform. According to the company, these students will be among the first individuals to work at the new Stanton Springs Plant.

In 2021, Rivian launched its first Technical Trades Program at the Normal facility, and some of those students currently contribute to the R1 production line. Arnhelm Mittelbach, Rivian’s VP of Manufacturing, highlighted that the innovative program is in partnership with Georgia’s technical college system.

The company is also expected to hold a groundbreaking ceremony for the new factory sometime this year.
