Robotics Graduates

FIRST STUDENTS GRADUATE FROM IN-DEMAND PLC AND ROBOTICS TECHNICIAN PROGRAM, SPONSORED IN PART
BY OAKLAND COUNTY MICHIGAN WORKS!

A total of 14 students graduated last Friday from the PLC and Robotics Technician Program at Oakland Community College in Auburn Hills.  The program is a collaboration and partnership between Oakland County Michigan Works!, OCC and the Workforce Intelligence Network. The goal is to help students obtain the high-demand, high skills and confidence needed to be the region’s next robotics technicians.  Upon completion of the no-cost 14 week course, students earned their OSHA 10 Card, FANUC 1 Certification, PLC Certification and a Certificate of Completion from Oakland Community College.  Interviews with local robotics and automation firms began this week for the graduates.  Oakland County’s effort to attract such businesses to the area has resulted in more than $21 million of new investment and 220 new jobs in the region during the past five years.  Overall, 85 robotics and automation firms in Oakland County employ more than 4,400 people. The next PLC and Robotics Technician Program training starts in January.
