Manufacturing Boot Camp

Many of the manufacturing businesses in the Alexandria region expressed a need for entry level job skills training for manufacturing machine operators. Acting upon the need, the Customized Training Department of ATTC procured a Minnesota Job Skills Partnership (MJSP) grant to provide a pilot program entitled “Manufacturing Boot Camp”. The course curriculum Is based on the National Institute of Metalworking Skills (NIMS) certification program and offered the attendees the option to earn certifications in three areas: Measurement, Materials, and Safety, CNC Turning Operator and CNC Milling Operator.

Seventeen employees from four area businesses completed the course in September 2012 and all 17 individuals successfully passed the certification process and were awarded all three certificates.
