Greater Cincinnati Manufacturing Careers Accelerator

The Greater Cincinnati Manufacturing Careers Accelerator (GCMCA) seeks to expand the capacity of Cincinnati State Technical & Community College to deliver accelerated, high-quality education and training programs that directly address the needs of manufacturers in the Cincinnati-Middletown Metropolitan Statistical Area. The GCMCA will: 1. Provide trade-impacted workers, veterans and other adults with comprehensive career/education assessments and best-in-class, accelerated programs for earning industry-recognized credentials leading to in-demand manufacturing careers; 2. Build the capacity of Cincinnati State's infrastructure to deliver these programs in the form of specialized equipment, to respond to the urgent current and future needs of regional manufacturers in the areas of CNC machining and welding; 3. Build the College's capacity to develop 2+2 articulation agreements for accelerated technical degrees with 4-year colleges in the region; 4. Build the capacity of the College to partner with regional manufacturers in the early identification of future workforce needs competencies and the rapid development of new training programs that incorporate industry-recognized credentials and accelerated learning. As part of this scope of work, the GCMCA and Cincinnati State will create two new credentials: AWS Welding and CNC Level 1 Certificates.
