Finger Lakes Community College will serve as host for information sessions in January for two courses that train people in skills in demand among advanced manufacturers in the region.
Residents can learn about the 12-week mechatronic technology program at an information session on at 9 a.m. on Jan. 11, at the FLCC Victor Campus Center, 200 Victor Heights Parkway, off Route 251.
FLCC developed the program in cooperation with employers, including Advanced Interconnect Manufacturing Inc. and New Scale Technologies Inc., both in Victor, Ontario County. Classes run from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. weekdays from March 6 to May 26 at the Victor Campus Center.
On Jan. 17, FLCC will hold an information session on the six-month advanced manufacturing machinist program, starting at 9 a.m. at ITT Goulds Pumps, 240 Fall St., Seneca Falls, Seneca County.
The program teaches students how to use computer-controlled machine tools to make precision parts for automotive, medical, aerospace and other industries. Classes are held at ITT Goulds Pumps from 4 to 8 p.m. March 20 to Sept. 22.
“Demand is so strong that nearly all students who complete these programs have a job or a job offer by the time they graduate, and we find they advance quickly,” said Marcy Lynch, FLCC director of workforce development, in a statement.
Prospective students must be 18 or older, have a high school diploma or its equivalent and a valid New York driver’s license. Tuition assistance is available for those who meet eligibility requirements.
