Are you looking to change careers or start a new career? Have you given any thought to a career in manufacturing?
Did you know the United States recently shifted from the fourth largest manufacturer to the second largest manufacturer in the world? The Association of Manufacturers predicts that the US will be the number one manufacturer of goods by the year 2020. This increase in manufacturing has produced a huge demand for manufacturing workers.
To meet this need, Craven Community College has partnered with local business and industry to determine what skill sets and personal traits are needed in a manufacturing career. Craven Community College, working with local manufacturers, has developed specific training that industry partners felt were most needed for individuals to be successful in manufacturing. This training includes hard-skills and soft-skills training.
Training topics include:
- Intro to Manufacturing
- Forklift Operator Certificate
- Lean Yellow Belt
- 10 Hour Safety
- Workplace Ethics
- Career Readiness Certificate
- Intro to Microsoft Word.
In addition, students will tour several local manufacturers to get a sense of a manufacturing environment. Many of the students who have successfully completed past courses were offered positions by local manufacturing companies.
Our next course will run take place Sept. 17 through Oct. 2, Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m..
