Aiken Technical College to Offer Free Manufacturing Training Course

South Carolina residents can earn an MSSC Certified Production Technician certification and several industry-recognized credentials by enrolling this spring in a free South Carolina Manufacturing Certification course offered by Aiken Technical College.

The free course will be held Monday-Thursday starting April 12 through June 17 from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. Participants must be at least 18 years of age and have at least a high school diploma or GED. To apply, contact Kendall Carter at (803) 508-7365 or carterk@atc.edu.

The course costs are covered by funding South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster allocated from the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief Fund (GEER) to the South Carolina Technical College System (SCTCS) in January. The funding provides free short-term job-training programs for South Carolina residents at SCTCS technical colleges to help them enter the workforce quickly with in-demand skills.

During the course, participants will learn about safety, quality practices and measurement, manufacturing processes and production, and maintenance awareness.

They will also have the opportunity to earn the following credentials: OSHA-10; Yellow Belt Lean Training; Snap-On Tools; ManuFirstSC; and forklift.

Those who complete the program will be invited to attend an “invitation only” job fair with the program's corporate partners. The corporate partners are AGY, Aiken Personnel Services, Aiken Precision Technologies, BAE Systems, Graniteville Specialty Fabrics, MAU Workforce Solutions, and MTU.

Enrolling in and completing this program does not guarantee employment.

Additional course dates are being planned for the future.
