Next CPT training starts next week
Community College will offer its third session of its Certified Production
Technician (CPT) training with a required orientation class, “Orientation to
CPT Training.” The class will begin Tuesday, May 24, and will meet Tuesdays and
Thursdays through June 19. Classes will be held from 9 a.m.-noon and 1-4 p.m.
at PCC’s Workforce Training Center, 303 S. Morgan St., and Roxboro.
Individuals will receive training in basic computer skills and study and
test-taking skills and will 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 June 26-Aug. 14. That class will meet from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. on Tuesdays,
Wednesdays and Thursdays with a lunch break from noon-1 p.m.
Certified Production Technician course will provide training for national
certification in four areas: safety awareness, manufacturing processes, quality
practices, and maintenance awareness. Upon successful completion of this
18-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. This new
program is somewhat different from regular programs as it includes job
development and placement at the end of training completion.

Financial assistance may be available to qualified unemployed, underemployed,
