By March 28, 2008Education and Training

From the Austin Daily Herald, Minnesota:

In response to manufacturing industry input, Riverland Community College has developed a new certificate in the Industrial Maintenance and Mechanics (IMM) program. The Production Technician I certificate will offer a short, specialized, foundation of manufacturing education and skills that provides students the opportunity to be competitive and successful in entry-level manufacturing production jobs.

Students will take classes related to cutting and drilling machines, small tool usage, gas welding, blueprint reading and jigs and fixtures along with an introductory computer class and classes in safety and OSHA, workplace human relations, technical math and quality and productivity improvement.

Riverland’s complete news release is available here.

Austin is the home to Hormel Foods, by the way, a fine manufacturer that creates lots of wealth and jobs in that part of Minnesota.
