The program provides100% scholarship funding for eligible residents of South Carolina who are veterans, unemployed, underemployed or even those who are would like to "re-career" into the field of advanced manufacturing.
The SCMC program is approximately 10 weeks long, and consists of 160 hours of classroom training and 40 hours of hands-on training. Upon successful completion of the program, graduates earn three nationally recognized certifications including MSSC Certified Production Technician, Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt and OSHA – General Industry.
In order to qualify for the program, applicants must be at least 18 years old; successfully complete a drug screen and background check ($20 fee); score silver (4) or better on the WorkKeys test; and have a high school diploma or GED. Candidates who qualify should be prepared to adhere to the attendance policy and satisfactorily complete all components of the training.
