Engineering Technology & Advanced Manufacturing
Engineering Technology & Advanced Manufacturing is a partnership including SCF, Tallahassee Community College and Polk State College, funded in part by a grant provided by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). This program supports course development, training, equipment purchases and job placements in three Florida regions including Sarasota and Manatee counties.
TBL Manufacturing Essentials: 80-hour course that teaches you the advanced manufacturing basics that employers are looking for in today's workforce. With this training, you are qualified to take the exams to receive the nationally recognized Manufacturing Skill Standard Council (MSSC) Certified Production Technician certificate, that can be used to articulate to 15 credit hours toward an A.S. in Engineering Technology at SCF. Cost: $385 (discounted from $1,350 because of the DOL grant). Cost includes text books, lecture, online learning and hands-on opportunities to learn. New sessions begin soon.
Introduction to Quality: This course covers the basics of quality in manufacturing and prepares learners for the American Society for Quality (ASQ) Certified Quality Improvement Associate (CQIA) certification exam. Classes begin May 2012.
