Greenfield Community College has partnered with Franklin County Technical School, the Franklin-Hampshire Regional Employment Board and Career Centers, area manufacturing companies and community partners to develop and implement new training programs to meet this growing need.

Foundational Manufacturing trainings will be held Spring, Summer and Fall.

  • Introduction to Lean Manufacturing (8 hrs)
