Jobs Are Everywhere If You Have The Right Training                  Robot

It’s true.  Industrial plants are looking for individuals with electrical, electronic, welding, heating and air conditioning, industrial systems and machining training.  These are good paying jobs in companies a person can easily drive to and from every day – manufacturing plants of all types, aviation facilities, communications businesses, health care facilities and more.  Those companies are looking for men and women to fill hundreds of jobs as they expand their company, replace those who are retiring, and fill openings due to increased workloads.

 The key is training.  Companies want trained individuals.

Rockingham Community College provides training in all of the industrial fields where jobs abound.  Industry leaders respect    ELN that training.  They know RCC graduates make excellent employees and they seek them out.

On Thursday, April 11, the Industrial Technologies Division is opening its doors for everyone to explore these industrial fields along with other areas of the Industrial Technology Division to include Sustainable Technologies and Horticulture Technology.  From 4-7 p.m., anyone can drop in to tour any or all of the industrial programs offered on campus.  Many will be amazed at the state-of-the-art equipment they will see, including CNC lathes, CNC milling, robotics and much more.

While it is true that manufacturing jobs use advanced equipment, it is equally true that RCC instructors are excellent at helping individuals master the knowledge they need so they are competitive and well-trained for     labtoday’s job market.

Rockingham Community College invites you to come out on April 11.  They call the event Advanced Manufacturing Day, which is part of a week long, statewide push to educate North Carolinians on careers in the industrial field: a field where a person who is well-trained can find a job.

The event will originate at the Industrial Technology Building 1entrance on the Rockingham Community College campus.  If you have questions about the event, please contact Perry Hughes, 336-342-4261 ext. 2157.
