Area manufacturing companies are encouraged to participate in a Pilot Training Project that can provide free training and a credential to their employees.
WorkOne Southern Indiana has developed a Pilot Project to offer Manufacturing Skills Standards Council (MSSC) Certified Production Training (CPT) to employees of area companies. The Training Project will permit area employers to evaluate the MSSC Certified Production Technician Credential as one option to address manufacturing technical skills needs.
The training is being offered “at no-direct-cost” to employers through a WorkOne grant made possible by the National Fund for Workforce Solutions. WorkOne sponsors the cost of training and testing for credential. Training will be provided by a certified instructor from Ivy Tech Community College. Employers are responsible for sponsoring the paid-time for trainees to attend the five-weeks of training/assessment coursework. The tentative timeline for this coursework is October 7, 2013 through November 7, 2013. Training for the Pilot class is being offered on a first-commitment basis. Each Company is allowed up-to-three trainees, based on class availability.
