Veterans Graduate from Manufacturing Skills Training Program

November 17, 2017

NEPIRC, in partnership with Lackawanna College, graduated area veterans from its Accelerated Manufacturing Career Readiness Program on November 16th.

This 3-week program prepared veterans for placement within high-demand, well-paying manufacturing jobs. The training was available free of charge to local military veterans.

The curriculum was based upon input from more than 30 regional manufacturers seeking to add to their workforce. As a result, a mix of technical and interpersonal skills were covered in a blended adult-learner format of classroom time and application. The training also included manufacturing plant tours and supplemental online learning.

Training was provided by NEPIRC’s staff of experts, Lackawanna College faculty, and Tooling U-SME.
