MVCC to offer free Certified Production Technician training to dislocated workers
Aug 1, 2017
Through a grant from the New York State Department of Labor, Mohawk Valley Community College is offering a free Certified Production Technician (CPT) training session to dislocated workers from 9 a.m.-noon on Tuesdays through Fridays from Sept. 12 through Dec. 8, on the Utica Campus. There will be additional testing days at the end of each module.
This training session will feature four individual certificate modules including Safety; Quality Practices and Measurement; Manufacturing Processes and Production; and Maintenance Awareness.
CPTs are individuals who demonstrate mastery of the core competencies of manufacturing production through successful completion of the certification assessments. The goal of this program is to raise the skill level of production workers to help them find higher-paying jobs and help them increase their company’s productivity and competitiveness.
Those interested should contact Teresa Fava-Schram, coordinator of Workforce Development at MVCC, at 315-792-5681 or go to their local Working Solutions to see if they qualify and reserve their spot.
