College to Offer Advanced Manufacturing Training in March

Welder surrounded by sparks.

GREENVILLE—Pitt Community College will offer a short-term training series next month to prepare students for jobs currently available in advanced manufacturing.

Scheduled to run March 3-26, the Advanced Manufacturing Institute (AMI) includes training in manufacturing concepts, problem-solving, OSHA 10, math for manufacturing, working smart, and Lean/Six Yellow Belt certification. Classes will be held at PCC’s Greenville Center Annex (550 Dexter Street) Tuesday through Thursday each week, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Students must sign up by Feb. 26 and pay a $180-registration fee in order to participate in AMI. Completion of National Career Readiness Certificate (NCRC) testing is also required.

For those who do not have NCRC scores, PCC offers the test through its Continuing Education and Workforce Development Department. More information is available by calling (252) 493-7885 or visiting www.rampeast.com. Sponsorship information is available at NCWorks Career Centers.
