Rhodes State College Will Host Free Manufacturing Training

The West Central Ohio Manufacturing Consortium (WCOMC) will offer its Basic Manufacturing Pathway class August 7-23, at Rhodes State College. This 40-hour class will be held Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm

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, a student must successfully complete three ACT WorkKeys assessments: Applied Mathematics, Locating Information, and Reading for Information.

“The demand for manufacturing employment in the region remains strong in all skill levels,” said WCOMC Director Doug Durliat. “This Basic Pathway class can lead to the beginning of a manufacturing career. From there, many manufacturers offer advancements and incentives 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.
Interested persons may register by calling the WCOMC at 419-995-8353.
