Tue. Jul 12, 2022 - by Josh Studl

Updated CCAC is to onboard another cohort of IMT apprenticeships in January 2023.

Community College of Allegheny County Workforce will run their Industrial Manufacturing Technician apprenticeships on Turbine. The 12 apprentices are from great regional companies: Impact Guard and McConway & Torley, LLC and it’s an honor to work with them. The IMT is ~18mo program w/ 264 hours of coursework and 2,736 hours of on-the-job training. Turbine will deliver the courses and automate other admin, record keeping that will save thousands of hours of time for all involved! (scoop: an announcement on our #apprenticeship features suite will be made in Aug.)

Apprentices will take CCAC’s MEC 100 & 102 courses on Turbine and upon completion are able to stand for the Certified Production Technician (CPT) Certificate from the Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSA).

Includes modules in: Safety, Quality, Mfg Processes and Production, Maintenance Awareness

We appreciate the comment of support from Dr. Justin Starr, who is the professor of Mechatronics and Advanced Manufacturing at CCAC, and a great champion of Turbine and has been administering the MEC courses on Turbine for more than a year.
