SCC Colville Center's new manufacturing program earns $120,000 state grant

— Spokane Community College's Colville Center has partnered with the local manufacturing industry and school district to bring a new program to the area beginning fall 2019.

The Industrial and Manufacturing Technology Program will address local industry's need for skilled workers. The project has been awarded $119,961 from the Washington State Board of Community and Technical Colleges (SBCTC) to buy new equipment and develop curriculum.

SCC is partnering with the Colville School District to offer the program as dual credit so students can earn both high school and college credit while gaining the skills needed to enter into local manufacturing. The program was created in collaboration with the Timber Products Manufacturers Association and employers such as Vaagen Brothers Lumber, Boise Cascade, Colmac Coil and Hewes Craft.

Some of the funds from the SBCTC workforce development grant will be used to purchase a hydraulic trainer, which will teach students how to operate, program and troubleshoot hydraulic and pneumatic equipment in manufacturing settings.
