Application for Tools for Advanced Manufacturing

[APPLICATION IS AT BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE.]

The Tools for Advanced Manufacturing for Veterans (TAMV) course is presented at Craven and Fayetteville Technical Community Colleges.  Its classes meet for three weeks, Monday through Friday from 0800 to 1700.  Instruction is provided at no cost to veterans through Duke Energy support to ECU and its Champions of Freedom Fund; however, for admission to the class, participants are REQUIRED to pay $30 to take the national ACT National Career Readiness Certificate examination at an NC Community College.  The classes are limited to 25 participants.  Registrations are taken on a first-come, first-served basis for those that complete all the requirements and can commit to the full three week course.  

Successful students will finish the course with three national technical certificates: ACT National Career Readiness Certificate™ (NCRC™), OSHA30 and Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt (this is the coursework portion of the Green Belt, which  requires projects), and are able to take additional ACT WorkKeys® assessment tests. These national certificates apply particularly in the manufacturing industry, and generally to many industries including healthcare, education, and other industry sectors.  Additional certificates may be obtained in Fork Lift Training. The course provides hands-on demonstration of advanced manufacturing equipment; instruction in innovation and industrial design; and resume and interviewing preparation.  Local and regional manufacturing firms participate in a speed interviewing process at the closing of the class.  This process affords the veterans practice in civilian interviewing as well as opportunities to secure follow-up interviews with the represented companies.
