Instructional Program (CIP)
Introduction to Manufacturing combines a number of competencies to prepare people for entry-level positions in the manufacturing industries. Students will be introduced to work readiness concepts that address employers’ concerns over the soft skills gap. Topics will cover personal motivation, effective communication and interpersonal skills, appropriate workplace behavior, and time management skills, among others. Issues that are pertinent to manufacturing will also be covered such as the challenge of rotating schedules, diversity and harassment, and physical requirements. Participants will earn an OSHA 10 certificate, which provides an overview of health and safety hazards present in the workplace. Safety is a critical issue in a manufacturing setting, and to that end, students will also participate in a 2-hour, hands-on Lockout/Tagout training through a local employer. Training in digital literacy will address the ever-growing need for computer-literate employees in plants that are run by computer software. Finally, the training will also include two tours of local plants, and several presentations from manufacturing HR professionals.
