fulton-campus-exteriorThis fall Cayuga’s Fulton campus once again offered its Advanced Manufacturing Program, which began on October 17th.  The 10-week program was developed by Cayuga Community College, area manufacturers, and the staff of Oswego County Workforce NY, with the plan to prepare job-seekers for jobs as entry level production workers at local industries.  The classes are taught by industrial trainers who work for local industries.  This is the third session of Pre-Employment Advanced Manufacturing Certificate Program that has been offered at the Fulton campus this year.  Those who take the Pre-Employment Advanced Manufacturing Certificate program have the option of continuing in a career path in advanced manufacturing.

“The development of the Pre-employment Advanced Manufacturing Program is a crucial step towards helping local manufacturers fill high demand jobs and providing Oswego County individuals the opportunity to build a career pathway in advanced manufacturing.  This program is a great opportunity for an individual looking to enter a field that provides a good wage, benefits, and opportunity for advancement,” said Carla DeShaw, Executive Dean of Cayuga Community College.

To date, 23 students have graduated from the first two 10-week sessions of the course and many are employed at local manufacturing companies such as Huhtamaki, Novelis and PaperWorks.
