PCC to offer Orientation to CPT Training
Piedmont Community College
offers the final session of 2012 for Certified Production Technician (CPT)
training with a required orientation class, “Orientation to CPT Training.” The
class will begin Thursday, Sept. 20, and will meet Tuesdays and Thursdays
through Oct. 16. Classes are held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at PCC’s Workforce
Training Center, 303 S. Morgan St., and Roxboro.
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 Oct. 25-Dec. 13,
2012. 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 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. This new
program is somewhat different from regular programs as it includes job
development and placement at the end of training completion. Graduates from the
class have been able to secure employment with local companies that are hiring.
To register or for information, contact Ann Kirby, Coordinator, at (336) 599-4620

assistance is available to qualified unemployed, underemployed, and
economically distressed individuals.
CPT program is being offered through PCC’s Workforce Certification Academy,
sponsored by the College’s Human
Resources Development and Customized Training Programs.
