Foundational Manufacturing Training (FMI)

Location: Franklin County Tech School in Turners Falls
$0 – FREE!

Out of work? (Or in a job that pays too little?) Wish you’d taken a vocational-technical pathway? IT’S NOT TOO LATE!

Local manufacturers have highlighted the strong need for new and experienced workers in advanced manufacturing due to the aging workforce.

Entry level manufacturing pays $10-$13/hr and experienced precision machinists can make $40,000 to $75,000 annually

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.

Two Foundational Manufacturing Initiative (FMI) 4-week trainings will be held Spring and Summer 2014.  The first FREE training runs May 12 with another starting June 30, Monday-Friday 4-9pm

  • Manufacturing Math (20 hrs)
  • Introduction to Lean Manufacturing (8 hrs)
  • Metrology (20 hours)
  • OSHA 10 Safety (10 hours)
  • Work Readiness (22 hours)

Trainings will be supplemented by online distance learning manufacturing  classes through subscriptions to ToolingU and ACT CareerReady101 to boost participants’ work readiness skills.

These trainings will prepare you for entry-level positions as Production Workers, Assembly Technicians, Shipping & Receiving Clerks for metal, plastic food and other manufacturers in Franklin and Hampshire Counties.
