Piedmont Community College will offer the first session of its Certified Production Technician (CPT) training for 2013 with a required orientation class, “Orientation to CPT Training.” The class will begin Tuesday, Feb. 5, and will meet Tuesdays, Wednesdays  and Thursdays through Feb. 26. Classes are held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at PCC’s Workforce Training Center, 303 S. Morgan St., and Roxboro.  

CPT training is somewhat different from other PCC programs in that it includes job development and placement at the end of training completion. Since the program began last year, 67% of all CPT graduates from the class have been able to secure employment with local companies that are hiring.      

Individuals receive training in basic computer skills and study and test-taking skills and  have an opportunity to earn their North Carolina Career Readiness Certificate. This course is required for anyone planning to take the Certified Production Technician (CPT) Training course, which will be held March 6-April 17, 2013. That class will meet from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays with an hour lunch break around noon.  

The Certified Production Technician course provides training for national certification in four areas: safety awareness, manufacturing processes, quality practices, and maintenance awareness. Upon successful completion of this 174-hour class, students will enroll in a Job Search class that will provide opportunities for students to be referred to local industries that have agreed to give priority status and interviews to graduates of the program.    To enroll in the class, report to the Workforce Certification Academy on Tuesday, Feb. 5 at 9 a.m. or contact Jeanette Godsey at (336) 322-2133 for information. Financial assistance is available to qualified unemployed, underemployed, and economically distressed individuals.  

The CPT program is being offered through PCC’s Workforce Certification Academy© and sponsored by the College’s Human Resources Development and Occupational Extension  Programs.
