At Lakeland Community College the Alliance for Working Together (AWT) Consortium, a local initiative addressing manufacturing needs and concerns, is full steam ahead as it launches an associate of applied science certificate/degree program. The goal of this program is to provide a pipeline of skilled workers to the manufacturing sector.
In conjunction with Auburn Career Center and concerned manufacturers, the AWT Consortium looked to Lakeland Community College to support the manufacturing community with a degree program to educate future employees. In addition to the associate of applied science degree, an educational and career pathway has also been developed. The degree will require at least 63 credits and be aligned with curriculum supported by the National Association of Manufacturers’ industry standards and skills certification system.
