The Manufacturing Institute plans to release five spotlights on the Community College Consortium for Bioscience Credentials (c3bc) over the next several months. The c3bc is a multistate consortium of 12 community colleges engaged in an educational and training initiative funded by the U.S. Department of Labor under grant TC- 23761-12-60-A-37. Under the c3bc, 12 Community Colleges nationwide coordinate to support strategies to assist grant participants to obtain employment in high-wage, high-skill occupations, such as biotechnology, biomanufacturing, and medical devices.

Educators across the United States have implemented the Skills Certifications System to better prepare and teach the skills needed for in-demand manufacturing jobs. The Institute is recognizing the efforts of these educators through our educator spotlights. 

If your institution is teaching manufacturing to industry standards, the Institute would like to recognize your efforts! Please contact AJ Jorgenson for more information.
