A free information session for the Adult Machine Tool Technology (AMTT) training program will be held at the WSWHE BOCES Southern Adirondack Education Center, 1051 Dix Avenue, Hudson Falls on Thursday, September 5, 2019 from 6-8 p.m. in the Multi-Purpose Room, Building D.
This intensive 500-hour training program was developed to address the current and anticipated need for machinists in specialty machine shops across the region as well as in companies engaged in Advanced Manufacturing. Local employers designed the program in collaboration with the Saratoga-Warren-Washington Workforce Development Board (SWWWDB) and WSWHE BOCES.
Employers will be on hand to discuss what the work is like and what it takes to be a successful machinist. They will also share information about careers in machining, what the training involves, and the outlook for employment and potential earnings in the region.
Representatives from the SWWWDB will explain the application and interview process and provide information on the eligibility requirements to qualify for tuition assistance. Attendees will also have an opportunity to tour the training lab and see the types of equipment they will be using.
The Adult Machine Tool Technology training program is scheduled to begin October 7, 2019 and continue through early-May 2019. For additional information on the classes, click here.
