Two New AACC Programs Target Unemployed Workers
Build on skills you learned in your old job with new skills that lead to jobs in the high-demand industries of mechatronics and cyber technology in just a year’s time under two new programs beginning in January at Anne Arundel Community College.
Mechatronics combines mechanics, electronics and software, making a mechatronics technician a high-tech jack of all trades. Machines developed in the 21st century have both mechanical and electronic parts, so industry requires technicians who know both disciplines. Examples of mechatronics systems include robotics, smart cars, renewable energy systems, advanced manufacturing and defense systems. At the end of the year-long certificate program, students will be eligible to take exams for the Siemens Level 1 certification and the Solid Works Associate certification.
The cyber technology training allows students to develop their business and information technology skills qualifying graduates for jobs in cyber customer service and technical support. Participants have the opportunity to sit for four industry-recognized certification exams: Cisco CCNA, CompTIA A+, Network+ and Security+.
Information sessions on Nov. 28, Dec. 5, Dec. 12 and Dec. 19 will explain the credit programs and how they work. All information sessions are offered from noon to 1 p.m. in the Center for Applied Learning and Technology Room 350 on the Arnold campus, 101 College Parkway. Please contact the program coordinators below with the date that best fits your schedule.
AACC's new programs are aimed primarily at unemployed or displaced workers and were developed with funding from a grant awarded to the National STEM Consortium (NSC) and 10 leading community colleges in nine states under the U.S. Department of Labor’s Trade Adjustment Act (TAA) grant program. The goal of the grant is to develop certificate-level programs in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) that could be implemented nationwide to meet critical labor market needs.
For information or to reserve a space on the mechatronics program, contact Joe Taylor at email@example.com or 410-777-2909 or Tim Callinan at firstname.lastname@example.org or 410-777-2354. For information or to reserve a space about the cyber technology cohort, contact Marelise Voss at email@example.com or 410-777-2524.
Brenda Hurbanis, chair of AACC’s Department of Education, has been awarded for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve. She was nominated by adjunct Lt. Col. Pam Nussbaumer, who has been deployed two or three times since beginning to teach here. Hurbanis worked out Nussbaumer’s teaching schedule around her deployments. Because of this award, AACC will be mentioned on the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve website as an outstanding employer, according to the letter received by Hurbanis.
