Mount Wachusett Community College will celebrate the opening of its Manufacturing Workforce Certification Center during an open house on Friday, Oct. 4 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Devens campus.
The center provides space and tools to provide hands-on experience to participants seeking skills, recognized by industry as critical to their success. It has been developed in response to the local needs for a reliable and skilled advanced manufacturing workforce. It provides capacity to offer credit and noncredit training that meets the specific needs of employers, including pre-employment and incumbent worker training. The center also provides a venue for industry meetings and workshops, and will become a resource to the region.
The development of the center has been made possible through the Massachusetts Community Colleges and Workforce Development Transformation Agenda, which is funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training through its TAACCCT program.
The open house, which will feature information about available programs and hands-on exhibits, is being held in partnership with Mass Development, Amp It Up, and the Nashoba Valley Chamber of Commerce.
