Manufacturing is an industry that fosters creativity and innovation while using the latest technology to make products for a wide array of needs — from everyday use to sending people into outer space. Our nation’s prosperity depends on a strong manufacturing industry.
Over the next decade, nearly 3.5 million manufacturing jobs will likely need to be filled and the skills gap is expected to result in 2 million of those jobs going unfilled. This is due primarily to the retirement of baby boomers and economic expansion.*
The Advanced Manufacturing Center offers non-credit workforce training.
Our machining training includes HEIDENHAIN CNC Programming, Mastercam, True Position in GD&T and Wire EDM. Welding training includes open labs and American Welding Society (AWS) certification testing.
Customized training is also available for employers at the Advanced Manufacturing Center. Or, we can arrange to send a qualified instructor to train employees at your site. Classes are added frequently, so check back to see our new course offerings. Contact Janet Colvin for more information.
