Hudson Valley Community College and Center for Economic Growth Announce New Manufacturing Technology Pathways Training Program



The Manufacturing Technology Pathways program is an intensive, multi-level program designed to allow participants to earn credentials in a short-term format to qualify for jobs or build on with additional coursework. The program is designed for adults who want to join the manufacturing workforce, but may not have the time or ability to commit to a full degree of certificate program all at once. It will also provide access to a variety of local manufacturers who have indicated difficulty filling positions.

Under the stackable credential model, the program will consist of two levels. Level 1 will be a short non-credit course, with classes online. Individuals completing this level of training will receive a local credential and be prepared to go immediately into entry level jobs in basic assembly and warehousing.

After completing Level 1, participants have the option to move up to Level 2 of the program, which will include an 80-hour boot camp offered over two consecutive weeks. Level 2 is a hybrid model, with online classes, in-person instruction and hands-on guided instruction in classrooms and labs. Training will build on the skills learned in Manufacturing Technology Pathway Level 1.

Level 1 of the program is expected to be offered in early November. The first Level 2 boot camp will be held in the Lang Technical Building at Hudson Valley on Dec. 18-22, 2017 and Jan. 8-13, 2018. The second boot camp will be held May 14-25, 2018.

The project is being created through a SUNY workforce development grant, with additional support from the New York State Workforce Development Institute, Center for Economic Growth and local manufacturing employers.

To learn more about or enroll in the program, contact Hudson Valley TEC-SMART Associate Dean Penny Hill at (518) 629-7294 or [email protected].
