Advanced Manufacturing information sessions - summer dates

Learn the knowledge and skills required to enter the field of Advanced Manufacturing by participating in our Boot Camp.

The Boot Camp will offer 4 college credits, interactions with potential employers, and the use of our state-of-the-art classroom and manufacturing lab space in the brand new Advanced Manufacturing Center at CCM. Students can earn certifications such as: OSHA-10, CPR, NIMS, and SolidWorks. There are opportunities for scholarships, and funding for un/under employment. Structured payments instead of one lump sum are available.

Participants who complete Shop Basics and the Advanced Manufacturing Core will be eligible to apply for apprenticeships through the CareerAdvance USA grant. This grant is an apprenticeship program that gives people of any skill level the opportunity to earn valuable credentials and skills in the advanced manufacturing field. Participation in this program can lead to better job opportunities in a year or less. Those who complete apprenticeships have a high rate of immediate employment in the manufacturing sector, with an average starting salary range of $45,000 to $65,000.

These Boot Camp classes are offered continuously, so you can enroll at any time. Learn from the comfort of your own home! They are taught by remote live instruction as well as by self-paced modules. Contact a CareerAdvance USA Coordinator today at CareerUSA@ccm.edu to begin to create your program plan.  Read more about Apprenticeship Opportunities in Advanced Manufacturing.
