Basic Manufacturing Pathway Classes

The West Central Ohio Manufacturing Consortium (WCOMC) will offer its Basic Manufacturing Pathway at Rhodes State College. This 40-hour class will be held Tuesdays & Thursdays, 6:00 to 8:00 pm, February 7 to April 13.

This class offers hands-on training in integrated systems troubleshooting, quality, continuous improvement, basic math & measurement and safety. The course covers workplace or “soft” skills in areas such as communication and teamwork. The course also includes resume writing and financial aid application for students pursuing additional training. 

Students enrolled in this course will take National Career Readiness Certification (NCRC) assessments at no cost, thanks to a grant obtained by Rhodes State College. The ACT NCRC is based on ACT WorkKeys research-based work skills assessments. To earn an ACT NCRC, an examinee must successfully complete three ACT WorkKeys assessments: Applied Mathematics, Locating Information, and Reading for Information.

“Demand for skilled, trained persons in manufacturing jobs in this region remains strong,” said WCOMC Director Doug Durliat. “Completion of this Basic Pathway class can lead to the beginning of a manufacturing career. From there, many manufacturers offer advancements in their companies, leading to better pay.” 

Students who achieve certification will also receive weekly information on local job openings and other certifications and degrees in the WCOMC pathway program. Students have the option of pursuing these training programs for higher-skilled, higher-paying manufacturing jobs.

Please register by February 6, 2107. See the attached brochure for more information.
