LIMA — The West Central Ohio Manufacturing Consortium (WCOMC), in conjunction with Rhodes State College, will offer its Basic Manufacturing Pathway class March 7-23 at Ohio Means Jobs – Allen County, 1501 S. Dixie Highway, Lima.

This 40-hour class will meet Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

“Students who complete this class will receive information weekly on manufacturing job opportunities in the region. Demand remains strong for entry-level manufacturing jobs and starting pay at many places has increased,” said WCOMC Director Doug Durliat. “Students who achieve certification will also receive information on other events that enhance their chances of employment, including local job fairs and mock interview days.”

The Basic Manufacturing Pathway class offers hands-on training in integrated systems troubleshooting, quality, continuous improvement, basic math, measurement and safety. The course covers workplace “soft” skills in areas including communication and teamwork. The course also includes resume writing and financial aid application for students pursuing additional training.
