BLACKWOOD, N.J., MAY 01, 2015 – The Christie Administration celebrated the graduation of its most recent class of advanced manufacturing trainees at Camden County College today. The New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development (LWD) launched the fabricated metal product/CNC manufacturing program several years ago in partnership with the New Jersey Community College Consortium and the New Jersey Business and Industry Association Manufacturers Network.
The training initiative, led by the LWD Advanced Manufacturing Talent Network, equips individuals for careers in the fabricated metal industry, which involves cutting, bending and transforming metal into finished products or parts for assembly.
“This program is successful because we are investing training dollars in industry sectors that are growing here in the Garden State and we are guided by the needs of New Jersey employers,” said Commissioner Harold J. Wirths of the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development. “These graduates are now equipped with skills for jobs that are in demand. I congratulate today’s graduates.”
