NVCC Offers Evening Manufacturing Certificate This Spring for Career-Geared Students

Waterbury, Conn. - Following the successful enrollment of the Advanced Manufacturing Certificate (AMC) pilot program this fall, Naugatuck Valley Community College’s (NVCC) Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center is offering up to 25 spots in an AMC evening cohort beginning in spring 2013. The spring semester begins January 25.

Classes will be held from 2 – 10 p.m., Mon. through Fri. Students who enroll in the spring can expect to complete the certificate program in December 2013.

 “As I travel across the region visiting our manufacturing community and listening to what their critical needs are, one topic continues to dominate the conversation for manufacturers large or small,” said Joe DeFeo, coordinator of the Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center (AMTC), “ and that’s developing a highly skilled workforce with a substantial pipeline of talent. We need the right people with the right training and skills for our local jobs.”

The College will continue to host walk-in information sessions through January at NVCC’s Waterbury campus. Prospective students should arrive at 2 p.m. in Technology Hall Room T643 on:

  • Thurs. Jan. 3
  • Mon. Jan. 7
  • Thurs. Jan. 10
  • Mon. Jan. 14.

Students who earn their one-year certificate in Advanced Manufacturing Machine Technology Level II will be qualified to work in machine technology and CNC manufacturing environments. The certificate provides desired work skills by combining hands-on instruction, interactive lab experiences, theory and possible on-site manufacturing internships.

“The Advanced Manufacturing certificate program here at NVCC has been designed in conjunction with industry professionals, thus preparing our graduates immediate entry into the workforce,” said DeFeo.

Additionally, credits earned in this certificate may apply to the College of Technology's (COT) Technology Studies advanced manufacturing degree option, which offers seamless transfer to several four-year universities including Central Connecticut State University and the University of Hartford.  

Students who enroll in these programs may be eligible for financial aid. In addition, these certificates are Workforce Investment Act (WIA) approved and qualify for assistance under the Veterans Retraining Assistance Program (VRAP).

The program curriculum is available at nv.edu/amtc. Contact Deirdre Moutinho at 203-575-8014 or dmoutinho@nv.edu to learn more about the program or open houses.
