PCC’s Certified Production Technician training offers industry-recognized credentials designed by the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council and extends certificates in the following areas:

Many local manufacturing companies have vacancies and are looking for new candidates to hire.

In fact, Meredith Summey of Polywood said the company “guarantees any graduate of the CPT program an interview at their facility.” She went on to say “Polywood offers that guarantee because we are fully confident that the CPT program at PCC has prepared them [the students] to be an excellent employee that they have the skills set and professional preparation to be an employee that will excel.”
