The purpose of this grant is to provide funding to Piedmont Community College (PCC) to enhance the college’s ability to train students for employment opportunities in advanced manufacturing. Funds will be used to advance training in the Certified Production Technician (CPT) and Siemens Level I programs. Employers in the area, specifically Person and Caswell counties, have expressed difficulty in obtaining qualified job applicants with the necessary skills to be productive in automated manufacturing environments. The project will provide students with more “hands-on” machine training making them better prepared to achieve productivity. PCC’s expects 85% of students completing the program to obtain employment or increased wages if already employed. Golden LEAF funds will be used to purchase equipment.
