Open Grants Program
County of Applicant:

This grant provides funding to Alamance Community College Foundation, Inc. to purchase specialized advanced manufacturing equipment that will allow Alamance Community College (ACC) to offer hands-on machining training that mimics workplace conditions. In new and existing courses, which were requested by local employers, students will be taught the operation, troubleshooting, programming, and other principles of computer-integrated machining processes. A survey of ten major manufacturing businesses with machining-related processes in Alamance County indicated the need to fill approximately 200 computer-integrated machining positions in the next three to five years. ACC projects that 200 students will receive training over that period, with 180 students receiving a certificate, diploma, or degree. Golden LEAF funds will be used for the purchase and installation of machining training equipment and related expenses.
