Humber College's new RapidSkills, Advanced Manufacturing Micro-credentials program is a timely addition to the college's offerings.
COVID-19 has disrupted the economy, the labour market and the lives of workers.
The program was designed for those who were interested in the industry, with potential to succeed, but without the necessary skills. It is needed now more than ever to help laid-off, at-risk and underutilized workers in the auto or advanced manufacturing sector transition to new roles and sectors.
For those interested, registration is still open for the program's second cohort. It will begin this month and end in mid-March.
A way to stand out
Micro-credentials help people upgrade their skills, re-learn crucial skills, or have a means of demonstrating their knowledge. Once completed, workers can share a digital badge with prospective employers. It can be displayed on an online resume, portfolio or website.
Humber College has collaborated with experts to build a course that will deliver results.
“Building off Humber’s longstanding relationship with the manufacturing sector, the new Advanced Manufacturing Micro-credential Program is a collaboration with employers and leading industry experts to prepare those unemployed and underemployed with the skills needed to secure a future in manufacturing,” said Nadia Desjardins, associate dean, Corporate Training Solutions.
The program can also strengthen the participants' employability by providing tools to help them be effective, efficient and adaptive to the changes experienced by the industry.
The micro-credentials include:
Mechatronics Control Systems
Electro Pneumatics and Hydraulics
Electric Motors, Actuators, and Drives
Program Logic Controllers (PLCs)
Lean Manufacturing & Quality Control Systems
Advanced Manufacturing Project
Developing Resilience during Change
Communication with Influence
The RapidSkills, Advanced Manufacturing Micro-credentials program is supported by funding from the Ontario government.
