Manufacturing Day Event Saturday, October 3

In recognition of Manufacturing Day, the University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton will hold an open house-style event, “Workforce Strong in Central Arkansas” on Saturday, October 3

This event, which will focus on the college’s technical and professional training programs, is free and open to the public. It is designed for anyone from currently enrolled junior and senior high school students to underemployed and unemployed adults. Guests will have the opportunity to freely explore the various technical areas, meet the instructors, and see the equipment and tools used in the hands-on labs. It is also a chance for individuals to speak with possible future employers who hire technical program graduates of UACCM.

Another goal of UACCM’s Manufacturing Day event is to provide information about the shortage of skilled workers that employers currently face. UACCM has invited numerous businesses to set up booths next to the technical areas that provide training for them.

Individuals considering the possibility of making a career change may also be interested in attending, as well as families with students enrolled in the eighth through twelfth grades who are exploring career opportunities.
