Training to Career

Industrial Workforce Skills Development Programs

Workforce development creates economic prosperity for individuals, companies and communities. Northampton Community College’s short-term career readiness programs provide job seekers with the skills and credentials they need to embark on a new career while providing employers with the skilled workers they are seeking. Our grant-funded, entry level programs provide basic training for your high demand positions and are FREE to those who qualify.

Our programs feature updated curriculum which is based on feedback from you… our valued industry partners. We apply our successful training model which blends on-line learning, hands-on and classroom instruction, and plant tours to reinforce key concepts. Company guest speakers create excitement about manufacturing careers. A designated student success coach helps students overcome barriers (daycare, transportation, lack of housing, language). Team building, root cause analysis and other employability skills are woven throughout.

Together, we can build a new generation of educated technicians and create economic prosperity across our community. Partner with us in this exciting endeavor by:

  • Sponsoring a company tour or lunch-and-learn.
  • Volunteering to be a guest speaker.
  • Participating in our Employer Day, where students have the opportunity to give their elevator speech and interview with ourpartner companies.
  • Hiring our program completers!
