Morristown, Tennessee (PRWEB) April 17, 2013
Walters State Community College (WSCC) will display their new manufacturing workforce solutions at the Morgan Inn in Greenville, TN on May 9th from 7:30 am – 10:00 am. Breakfast will begin at 7:30 with the program starting at 8:00 am. The program is open to all manufacturing skills stakeholders in the area. “We are inviting all local manufacturers, state workforce professionals, and local organizations concerned about the industrial skills shortage in our area,“ states Dr. Anita Ricker, Assistant Dean for Community Education at WSCC. “Walters State is very excited about these new capabilities and we look forward to introducing the programs to those most impacted by the manufacturing skills shortage. The programs developed by Scientific Management Techniques (SMT) are currently improving manufacturing employment and manufacturing performance in the Memphis and Cleveland, TN market and we eagerly anticipate delivering the same impact for our manufacturing partners in East Tennessee.”
WSCC will have four industrial skill assessment machines on display during the presentation; the Mechanical Skills assessment machine, Electrical Skills assessment machine, PLC Skills assessment machine, and the CNC Skills assessment machine. SMT’s President, Mr. Stephen Berry, will demonstrate how each machine functions, discuss the assessment methodology, and describe how the assessment scores are used to predict workforce performance. “Identifying and measuring skills in the hiring process is the single most effective way to insure a quality hire in manufacturing," states Berry. “The program simplifies the hiring process, lowering both the risk and cost of hiring.”
SMT is the global leader in manufacturing skills training and manufacturing skills assessments. Their programs are currently deployed in thirty-one countries and across a wide variety of manufacturing platforms. SMT’s hands-on, performance-based manufacturing skills assessment machines are used in the hiring process to identify and measure the skills of candidates. Many organizations assess their incumbent workforce and deliver targeted training based on the assessment data.
Also on display will be many of the hands-on training aids used in SMT’s industrial skills training curriculum. SMT’s industrial skills training program is a hands-on, 100% demand-driven program. The curriculum has been built by and for industrial operations professionals. “We have delivered this training in manufacturing facilities globally for many years," explains Berry, “The skills curriculum trains the skills required to operate, maintain, and troubleshoot a modern manufacturing facility. Currently, the demand for our training program in formal education is growing rapidly as schools work with their industrial partners to identify and deploy an effective solution to the skills shortage. We work with many community colleges, effectively improving employment and industrial performance in each market. With these capabilities Walters State will be helping local manufacturers drive performance by improving the skill level of the manufacturing workforce.”
