Rivian has officially initiated its first cohort of students for a technical training initiative, aimed at bolstering operations at its forthcoming factory in Georgia.

The program, originally unveiled in conjunction with the construction of Rivian’s Stanton Springs facility near Atlanta, Georgia, has now commenced with the admission of 26 students into its Technical Trades Program for Stanton Springs North (SSN), as disclosed in a recent LinkedIn post by the company.

Designed as a 16-week foundational training endeavor, the program provides hands-on learning opportunities under the guidance of industry professionals at Rivian’s plant in Normal, Illinois. Upon completion, participants will utilize their acquired skills at the forthcoming Rivian factory in Georgia, which is slated to produce the next-generation R2 platform.

David Stevens, Rivian’s Director of Maintenance, expressed enthusiasm about the program, noting that the students represent the vanguard of individuals destined to be integral to the operations at the new Stanton Springs Plant.

Having launched its initial Technical Trades Program at the Normal facility in 2021, Rivian highlights the contribution of some former students to the production line of the R1 electric pickup truck.

Rivian is poised to unveil its next-generation compact SUV, the R2, on March 7, with construction of the Georgia plant awarded to a designated construction company in December. A groundbreaking ceremony for the new facility is anticipated later this year.
