Advanced, modern manufacturing is rapidly expanding in the Champlain Valley, and ETS is honored to partner with CV-Tec, and Clinton Community College to provide this crucial pathway to individuals seeking to begin a successful career in manufacturing. Since 2009, AIME (Assembling Industry: Manufacturing and Education) has been preparing and training individuals throughout the North Country for new opportunities in manufacturing that offer meaningful, engaging and rewarding roles. The next session will continue to build upon this momentum.

As the local manufacturing industry continues to flourish and grow, it is imperative that our community partnerships and pathways into the industry grow with it. With the help of local industry feedback, the AIME training program curriculum has improved in exciting ways. Most notable is the addition of 2 modules of the Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC) assessment and certification program. Additionally, the bulk of the technical training will take place at the new Institute for Advanced Manufacturing (IAM) at Clinton Community College.
The 8 week training course, slated to begin September 18, will focus on developing hard and soft skills and include:

  • Facility Tours
  • OSHA 10 Certification
  • National Work Readiness Credential
  • NEW integration of MSSC Safety*
  • NEW integration of MSSC Manufacturing Processes & Production*
  • Hands-on Projects
  • Employment Seminar

* MSSC (Manufacturing Skill Standards Council) is an industry-led, training, assessment and certification system focused on the core skills and knowledge needed by the nation’s front-line production and material handling workers. The nationwide MSSC System, based upon industry-defined and federally-endorsed standards, offers both entry-level and incumbent workers the opportunity to demonstrate that they have acquired the skills increasingly needed in the technology-intensive jobs of the 21st century. As an added bonus, with the integration of MSSC courses students will be eligible to receive college credit should they wish to continue their education at Clinton Community College in the future.

The AIME employment seminar offers manufacturers throughout the region a unique opportunity to connect with graduates of the AIME program who have proven themselves to be dedicated and have gained the skills to flourish in a career in manufacturing. As we prepare for the fall session, we are currently accepting requests from manufacturers who wish to be included in the Facility Tour portion and/or the Employment Seminar.

Facility Tour: Give participants an inspiring behind the scenes look at your technologies in action, and an overview of the opportunities that exist.

Employment Seminar: At the conclusion of the course, be the first to interview one-on-one with these skilled and dedicated individuals.
