Event Description:

Employers are invited to hear about no-cost, short-term training programs offered in robotics and automation through the Advance Michigan Catalyst program. Upon successful completion of training, students may earn their OSHA 10 Card, FANUC 1 Certification, PLC Certification and a Certificate of Completion from area colleges. Participants in certain programs will also be prepared to take the Siemens Mechatronics Systems Certification Level 1 Exam.

At the conclusion of the program, participants will interview with local robotics and automation firms. If your company is in need of talented individuals with these skills, you won’t want to miss this event. Funding is also available for companies that want to upskill and promote their existing employees in robotics and automation related occupations.

The Workforce Intelligence Network (WIN), in partnership with Macomb Community College, Oakland Community College, Macomb/St. Clair Michigan Works!, and Oakland County Michigan Works!, invite employers to hear first-hand from program representatives and graduates of these programs. MCC and OCC have each designed a variety of programs to help students obtain the knowledge, skills and abilities required for employment at the technician level.

The Advance Michigan Catalyst program is funded through an America’s Promise grant from the US Department of Labor through 2020. Funds are limited!
