(Shelby, NC) – Fall registration at Cleveland Community College will be held on Monday, August 11, from 8:30 a.m. until 6 p.m. in the Jack Hunt Campus Center. The College offers Associate in Arts, Science, and Fine Arts degrees as well as Associate in Applied Science degrees, diplomas, and certificates in over 100 programs. Students can choose from a wide variety of majors including business, computers, education, nursing, and machining.
All of the College’s popular programs will be offered during the fall semester including those that provide students with the necessary skills to enter the ever-growing manufacturing workforce. According to an Accenture 2014 Manufacturing Skills and Training Study, there is a skills shortage that is currently threatening the growth of US manufacturing with more than 75 percent of manufacturers reporting a moderate to severe shortage of skilled workers. CCC is a constant supplier of skilled workers to local manufacturing companies by training students in automation engineering, industrial systems, biotech maintenance, welding, and other technical fields.
According to the report, “Manufacturing has become more efficient through automation, which has resulted in the need for a smaller and more skilled workforce.” CCC’s Automation program prepares students for work in industries that utilize automation, electronics, and electromechanical devices in their manufacturing systems. Recently, CCC received a $209,876 grant from the Duke Energy Foundation that will be used to support the advanced welding and automation training using simulators and robots.
Students interested in any of these fields and becoming part of a skilled workforce should plan to register on August 11. Prior to registration, students can apply online by visiting financialaid.
