Intro to Manufacturing Careers

  • This class is for people wanting to learn more about career possibilities in manufacturing and have a better understanding of the manufacturing sector.  This class helps students identify which of the three manufacturing pathways (electronics, CPT or welding) best meets their career goals.

    This class will cover:

    • careers in manufacturing
    • develop a knowledge base of safety, production and logistics
    • equipment in manufacturing

    Additionally, students will develop employability skills and practice math in manufacturing.  Students will speak with local companies, as well as visit a manufacturing work site.  Students that are job ready, will be assisted with resumes and interviews.

Manufacturing

  • Manufacturing includes three distinct pathways:

    Electronics Pathway:  
    Including soldering and assembly training.  Students receive their IPC J-Standard soldering certification.

    Certified Production Technician (CPT) Pathway:  Includes certification in the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council’s (MSSC) CPT program, the entry-level certification in the production manufacturing environment.

    Welding Pathway:  Students will be expected to master at least one American Welding Society (AWS) 1G process required by many metal manufacturers as well as employers in the skilled building trades. Every manufacturing student will be required to complete the CPT Introduction course focused on maintaining safety and ensuring quality.

ESL Bridge to Manufacturing

  • This class is for second language speakers interested in improving their English in order to work in manufacturing.  Students will develop vocabulary and practice listening and speaking to be for safety and health at work.  Students develop reading skills with workplace materials such as the production process, using machinery, and taking accurate measurements. This class will prepare students to take the Certified Production Technician Basics Course.
