WCOMC to Offer Free Manufacturing Training Course at Ohio Means Jobs-Allen County 2018

Lima OH (December 21, 2017) The West Central Ohio Manufacturing Consortium (WCOMC) will offer its Basic Manufacturing Pathway class January 8-26, at Ohio Means Jobs-Allen County, 1501 South Dixie Highway, Lima.  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. 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.

“Students completing this course during the past year have been hired at some of the top-name manufacturers in the region,” said WCOMC Director Doug Durliat. “This Basic Pathway class can prepare students for the demands of advanced manufacturing jobs. 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 by January 4.
