We will be holding the Certified Production Technician (CPT) Training and Certification here at WorkSource Beaverton-Hillsboro starting in April 2017.
The training is FREE to qualifying WorkSource customers. Space is limited so apply early!
The CPT is an industry recognized credential www.msscusa.org that will help our WorkSource customers become employed in the manufacturing/production industry sector. The course covers four key competency areas:
*Quality Practices and Measurement
*Manufacturing Processes and Production
The course will be delivered by a manufacturing industry professional. Each week there will be classroom instruction and supervised study time in a computer lab. At the end of each training module, students will take a certification examination. Three or more employer tours will be held during the training. On the last day of the class there will be an Employer Event where students will be able to interview with local companies who are hiring.
The training is nine weeks long, and will go from April 10 - June 6, 2017; Monday - Friday; 8:30am -12:30pm (plus 2 optional afternoon study labs each week)
