The Northwest State Community College Board of Trustees met in regular session at the University of Toledo Scott Park campus to tour and review the programs and training offered through the Advanced Manufacturing Training Center operated by Custom Training Solutions.
Custom Training Solutions, a division of NSCC, has been offering workforce development training at the University of Toledo Scott Park campus for more than eight years. Through the partnership at UT and several state and federal grants awards, Custom Training Solutions has expanded services to provide training to more than 18 counties in northwest Ohio. The UT Scott Park campus and NSCC main campus in Archbold both have newly renovated advanced manufacturing equipment and computer labs designed to meet the demands of workforce training for today and the future.
“Workforce training is highly sought after by area businesses as they work to keep their employees up to date with changes in technology and equipment,” said Paul Siebenmorgen, chair of the NSCC Board of Trustees. “It is exciting to see the innovative work that the College is doing and to see the partnerships that have been created to benefit students and employers in the region.”
The NSCC Board of Trustees reconvened after the joint meeting to complete NSCC business.
