Open House for New Manufacturing Workforce Certification Center at Devens Campus

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.
