The Advanced Manufacturing programs train students for high-growth careers. These diverse industries require hands-on training for students to master the latest technology and equipment. Graduates in these fields keep systems running and secure, work with complex hardware and software and provide research and other technical support for manufacturing, food production, engineering and construction industries.
Students who are currently employed may also participate in available metalworking apprenticeship options. An apprenticeship is a competency-based training system, approved by the U.S. Department of Labor, that prepares workers for highly skilled and specialized occupations.
Northeast Iowa Community College is endorsed by the Manufacturing Institute's M-list for providing students the opportunity to earn NAM-Endorsed Manufacturing Skills Certifications as a standard part of their manufacturing education programs. The M-List distinguishes quality manufacturing education and training programs that are a preferred source of talent for manufacturing employers.
