ATS Initiates Free Training Program

Adaptive Technology Solutions (ATS) has announced "Manufacturing Pays," a series of free training programs to be held throughout the state of Ohio. According to the company, those who may benefit from the programs include individuals who are veterans of the U.S. Military; individuals unemployed or under-employed; and individuals that have a background in a non-manufacturing environment and have an interest in pursuing a well-paying job in the manufacturing industry.

The initial free training program will be held at ATS the week of November 4th, Monday through Friday, from 6 PM to 9 PM. This five-day program provides attendees with basic CNC knowledge. In addition, attendees will learn the skills needed to program G-code, CAM and Edgecam Workflow.

"Today, the challenge the manufacturing industry has is with perception," said a company spokesperson. "The vision most Americans have is one of a dirty, greasy, filthy environment, similar to those of the early 1900s. However, the reality is far from perception. Today, most manufacturing facilities are typically very clean and provide excellent wages. In 2011, the average manufacturing worker in the United States earned $77,060 annually, including pay and benefits, while contributing more than $1.87 trillion to the U.S. economy in 2012, according to the National Association for Manufacturing.

"For many individuals, a four-year college degree is the key to a successful future. However, after successfully completing the program, many attendees may use their Technical Learning Certificate (TLC) to lead them to find a lucrative career in manufacturing by pursuing a technical degree."

After successfully completing the program, each attendee will receive an Edgecam license, which comes with yearly updates and training updates.

Edgecam is part of the Vero Software Group (England). Additional brands include Alphacam, Cabinet Vision, Machining STRATEGIST, PEPS, Radan, SMIRT, SURFCAM, WorkNC and VISI, along with the production control MRP system Javelin.

Training program space is limited. Attendees are encouraged to contact ATS to register and secure a place.
