Division of Manufacturing Technology & Engineering
The mission of the Division of Manufacturing Technology & Engineering at EMCC is to enhance the economic opportunities for the residents of our district in order for them to achieve the American Dream.
We partner with area Business and Industry to meet their workforce training needs. For individuals seeking employment or changing careers, we provide counseling and employability skills training.
We assist local Economic Development organizations in retaining and expanding existing Business and Industry and recruiting new Business and Industry to our community.
Workforce Coordinators work closely with businesses to design and present the types of training on demand that is needed by the clients. Training is presented only after extensive collaboration with the client to determine the exact needs of the business and the outcomes expected. A typical training scenario is presented that utilizes both lecture and hands-on work that is relevant to the training being conducted. Our training is conducted using personnel from the business requesting training, college personnel from both academic and vocational/technical areas, and subject area experts. The length of training varies and is dependent upon the scope.
We also offer credit and non-credit classes and training in a wide range of areas who are looking to upgrade their skills or may be seeking a new skill set for a change in employment.
In FY 2016-2017, the Workforce Services at EMCC delivered 88,530 hours of workforce training to 5,125 participants. State Workforce Funds were expended for equipment and training.
