MANCHESTER, Conn. (September 1, 2021) – Manchester Community College will hold free information sessions Tuesday, September 7, and Tuesday, September 21, from 3 to 4 p.m., in room AST C145. Interested students can choose one session or the other. Both will provide students with an opportunity to ask questions and get answers about the college’s precision manufacturing certificate program. COVID-19 protocols apply to all on-campus activities.
The next cohort of the college’s 24-week precision manufacturing certificate program begins Monday, October 18.
The manufacturing sector comprises businesses who convert raw materials, substances or components into new products, and jobs involve planning, managing and performing the processing of materials into intermediate or final products as well as related professional and technical support activities, such as production planning and control, maintenance and manufacturing/process engineering, according to the Connecticut Department of Labor.
MCC’s precision manufacturing certificate is designed to provide students with a valuable skill set in just six months. Students who complete the program are qualified for an entry-level position as a CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machine operator. They also may earn both a non-credit and credit certificate and up to 30 credits that can be applied toward an associate in science degree in Technology Studies-Industrial Technology Option.
