The IMT program is a fully interactive curriculum with instructor led training covering measurements, industrial math, spatial concepts, introduction to mechanical components, introduction to fluid power, introduction to industrial electricity, basics of chemistry, manufacturing process, quality, lean and SPC Basics, business skills and dndustrial safety readiness training.
“We have worked closely with the workforce development team at Penn College to supplement funding for the program and we look forward to the impact on our workforce. We have six apprentice trainees in the program already,” says Diane Pisciotti, director of talent at Currier.
