Pilot Manufacturing Technician Course to Begin March 11

Certified Production Technician, a new pilot manufacturing course, will start Monday, March 11 at Rockingham Community College and end June 26.  Through blended classroom and hands-on learning, the course focuses on the skills and fundamental knowledge needed to work in today’s advanced, high performance manufacturing environment.

Classes will be meet Mondays and Wednesdays from 12:30-4:30 p.m. in room 204, Bishopric Lifelong Learning Center, 568 County Home Rd., Wentworth.

Certified Production Technician training is designed to prepare anyone for entry-level manufacturing positions.  Former manufacturing employees as well as those new to the field will benefit from the course, which is supported by the Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC).  Course topics include safety, quality practices and measurement, manufacturing processes and production, and maintenance awareness.

During the course, students will combine interactive online training with instructor-led material. After each of the four subject modules, students will take an assessment at the Certified Assessment Center at RCC or at the Job Resource Training Center in Madison.  Students will earn a certificate for each module assessment he/she passes.  After successful completion of all four modules, each student will be eligible to take the exam to become a MSSC Certified Production Technician.  This certification is recognized nationally and supported by the National Association of Manufacturers.
