MANCHESTER, Conn. (September 11, 2020) – Manchester Community College will hold an online information session Tuesday, September 22, from 4 to 5 p.m. to provide students with an opportunity to ask questions and get answers about the college’s precision manufacturing certificate program. The free information session will be conducted by WebEx but there is no need to have the software, as registered attendees will be directed into an event template to start the session.
The next cohort of the college’s 24-week precision manufacturing certificate program begins October 19. The online information session extends access to educational opportunities in Connecticut’s re-opening manufacturing sector, while helping to ensure everyone’s safety and health during the pandemic.
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.
