Did you know the month of October is Manufacturing Month?
Manufacturing Month is the chance for us to highlight the industry’s many contributions to our state and nation. It is also an opportunity to build excitement about careers in manufacturing and introduce the newest generation who are entering the workforce to the various sectors throughout industry. Manufacturing today is clean, diverse, high tech, and sustainable. Gone are the days of dark, dirty, dangerous work of the past that so many envision.

Manufacturing careers of today look a lot different from those of previous generations. Today’s manufacturing workers are innovators and entrepreneurs, creators, makers and dreamers. This industry holds opportunities that satisfy a wide range of interests - from science, engineering, and mechanics, to areas like finance, sales, and communications.
 
Many of these careers require a certificate or degree in order to ensure you meet the qualifications and skill level, for employment. To learn more about the manufacturing pathways, as well as certificate and degree programs available in our area go to:
