State Fair Community College will offer five new MoManufacturingWINs grant-funded programs this fall to meet the growing workforce needs of the manufacturing industry.

The $15 million statewide MoManufacturingWINs* program is funded by the U.S. Department of Labor and administered through the Missouri Community College Association. The grant funding provides tuition assistance to eligible students. The five programs are pending anticipated Missouri Coordinating Board of Higher Education approval. They are:

• Machinist Level I Skills Certificate, entry-level program: This 16-credit-hour program can be completed in one semester. Students gain entry-level experience and fundamental skills. This certificate can be earned on its own or stacked with the Machinist Level II Skills Certificate.

• Machinist Level II Skills Certificate, advanced program: This 13-credit-hour program can be completed in one semester. Students gain additional knowledge and skills for increased productivity. This certificate can be earned on its own or stacked with the Level I Skills Certificate.

• Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) Professional Certificate: This 30-credit-hour program can be completed in two semesters. It trains students as industrial maintenance technologists or millwrights who can be employed in commercial, production, manufacturing, and other industrial settings. Students who successfully complete the program can take the Certified Maintenance and Reliability Technician certification exam offered by the Society of Maintenance and Reliability Professionals, which is highly regarded by employers.

• Advanced Manufacturing Production Technician (AMPT) Skills Certificate: This 12-credit-hour program gives students a foundation in manufacturing processes, safety, quality, operations, and maintenance functions. Students who successfully complete the certificate also earn Certified Production Technician certification from the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council, which recognizes mastery of core competencies at the entry level that can lead to higher-paying jobs and increase workforce productivity and competitiveness.

• Pipe Welding Skills Certificate: This 17-credit-hour program trains students in the high-demand field of pipe welding. Students will use the SMAW and GTAW processes to weld pipe and tubing according to ASME code. Upon successful completion, students are eligible to receive several welder qualifications, which provide a competitive edge when searching for a job.

The college already offers a 17-credit-hour, fast-track 16-week Structural Welding Skills Certificate through the MoManufacturingWINs program.
