WNC has partnered with Panasonic Energy of North America (Gigafactory) to provide training needed to fulfill upcoming job opportunities. Sign up today to receive training that will prepare you to be considered for exciting opportunities in Advanced Manufacturing.
With just a few weeks of accelerated training at Western Nevada College this fall, students can gain the knowledge and skills necessary for employment by a Northern Nevada manufacturer.
Seats are available for WNC’s fall Manufacturing training classes. Students may enroll in Fundamentals of Applied Industrial Technology (AIT 101), Applied Industrial Technology Hands-on Lab (AIT 155), and Applied Industrial Technology Projects (AIT 200).
These online and lab-driven classes will provide with the know-how in areas such as AC/DC electrical, pneumatics, relay controls and hydraulics. Students will have the opportunity to practice on Web-based simulators and train on equipment during lab sessions.
“Get trained and get a job,” said WNC Electronics and Industrial Technology Professor Emily Howarth. “These are very targeted job openings that are coming up in manufacturing in the fall. These classes are aligned with the job descriptions of the positions that will be opening.”
Several large companies are interested in WNC students, Howarth said.
“Employers like Tesla, Panasonic, and ClickBond are hiring WNC students,” Howarth said.
Howarth said that the lab sessions will be instructor-led. Students can polish their skills with additional lab time. Students will have access to computers to complete their online course requirements.
In addition becoming employment-ready in manufacturing, passing these classes applies to WNC’s Associate of Applied Science degrees in Technology-General Industrial, and Technology-Automated Systems.
