"We've come to find that many people just aren't aware of the awesome careers that they could find in manufacturing. It was designed to allow our community to gain exposure and knowledge, as well as a skill set in manufacturing. It's also designed to meet the needs of our industry employer community as well," said Dan Bryant, the training program director.
Jacob McCain, one of the program’s participants, said, "When an employer sees this, they're going to automatically think 'Hey, this guy may come in here and help us with our processes.’ So this is a great thing to have on your resume."
Anyone can enroll in the program, you do not need to be a student at Forsyth Tech.
