If getting a degree isn’t your thing, how about a certificate?
If you’re more of a trouble-shooter and enjoy fixing problems, you could make more money than your friends and family members with a four-year degree. Seriously.
There’s a lot happening in the world of metal and plastic manufacturing. There’s even more happening in electrical technology and HVAC. Environmental regulations and continuing economic growth are feeding the need for people certified in specialized fields.
What do you need to do? Learn how to troubleshoot, operate, service, and maintain Computer Numerically Controlled systems.
If you’ve never heard of those, they have been around for years in commercial and industrial settings. People with a CNC certificate can program tools in metal and plastic manufacturing, or work in HVAC or electrical technology. Ninety percent of people working in these fields make $35 an hour. If you like the sounds of that, check it out:
We just put the finishing touches on a new Computer Numerically Controlled lab created specifically for a certificate program at the our M-TEC facility in Gaylord. We’re ready to help more people in our region be more qualified for better jobs, earn more money, fill open positions, and meet the demand for qualified employees in these specialized fields.
Classroom and lab time will be combined. You’ll learn everything you need to be an asset to an employer. You’ll also be worth more money.
You’ll be studying from the National Center for Construction Education and Research curriculum. You’ll also polish your skills through internships and some hands-on learning projects with local contractors.
Our instructors are industry-trained master electricians or electrical engineers or with experience in all CNC-related applications.
