For those who need the skills to qualify for these openings, Greenville Tech will have advisors and financial aid representatives available to talk about training for manufacturing. Accelerated training opportunities are now open for enrollment. These programs allow a student to begin in August and be trained to qualify for positions by December and include programs in CNC Prep & Basic Machine Operator and Production Technician. There are also non-credit options through the college’s Corporate and Career Development division including Mechatronics Systems and Manufacturing Production Technician, a curriculum based on Manufacturing Skill Standards Council guidelines.

According to the SC Upstate Alliance 2011 investment announcements, more than 4,000 new manufacturing jobs will be created within the next three to five years in the region.
