RCC Partners with Tomorrow’s Workplace to Offer
Training in Advanced Manufacturing
Ramapo – People seeking to prepare for employment in manufacturing fields can now enroll in a Certified Production Technician program at Rockland Community College, run in partnership with Tomorrow’s Workplace and the County Executive’s Office.
The Certified Production Technician Program is comprised of a series of classes, offered both on campus and online, in the field of advanced manufacturing including: safety, quality, manufacturing processes and maintenance.
When they have completed each class, students can register to take the national exams at RCC, which is a Certified CPT Assessment Center.
Additional free online courses in manufacturing through Tooling University will also be available.
The program is thanks to a grant of $57,000 over three years from the Department of Labor through Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT).
TAACCCT provides grants to community colleges for programs that prepare unemployed or underemployed adults for employment in high-wage, high-skill occupations.
Rockland County Executive Day said, "Manufacturing is a key component of our local economy, and to remain on the cutting-edge, we must invest in our workers. Apprenticeship training, like the Certified Production Technician program, encourages people to enter the field and find success. Smart investment in worker training will help industries, including manufacturing, grow their businesses and create jobs. I truly appreciate this important collaboration with Rockland Community College and Tomorrow's Workplace."
