Bridging the Skills Gap

Manufacturing Skills Connection I recently attended the Graduation Ceremony for the first Manufacturing Skills Connection class for Shelby County. This program is designed to help equip the workforce with the skills and abilities that are needed in the current manufacturing environment. The MSC program is a collaborative effort between Government, Industry, and Education. Duke Energy has been a major sponsor of this initiative by providing funding for the program. There is no cost to the student to attend the program other than their time and effort. The program even contains enough flexibility so that the student can continue working while attending the program so that no loss of existing income occurs. After graduating the program, the students will have a nationally recognized certification known as a Certified Production Technician (CPT). This certification is administered by the Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC). This assures potential employers that these candidates have a basic level of skills in Safety, Manufacturing, Quality, and Maintenance Awareness. This gives the candidate a leg up on their competition in an increasingly competitive job market. Manufacturing Skills Connection SCDCThe first Manufacturing Skills Connection class included Jay Berkheimer, Juan Pablo Ramirez Perez, Logan Ross and Ancil Smith all of Shelbyville; Mark Yancey of Morristown; Alvin Baker of Greenfield; and Michael Conner of Rushville.MSC Certificate

Participating employers in the program include Makuta Technics, Ryobi Die Casting, VIP Tooling, Indiana Precision Forge, O’Neal Steel and PMC Smart Solutions.MSC Employers More information can be obtained including how to get signed up for the program at manufacturingskillsconnection.com. Following is a video of the ceremony participated in by Shelbyville Mayor Tom DeBaun, Cathy Wenning of Duke Energy, several employer partners, representatives of Work One, The Shelby County Development Corporation, Ivy Tech, and others.
