KY Manufacturing Center Anniversary Report on Impact of MSSC
On May 15th, the Kentucky Manufacturing Career Center (KMCC) celebrated its 4th anniversary and 1000 job placements with a reception including Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer. Over the past four years, KMCC – the Louisville Workforce Investment Board’s first industry-focused career center – engaged over 100 employers in the process of guiding industry-specific career services and training so that job seekers would have a better chance for the region’s manufacturing jobs.
The CPT program has been a key component to the training that takes place at the center. The KMCC issued over 1,700 modular CPT certificates, and fully certified over 300 CPT graduates. The 1000th job placement, to Bigelow Tea in Louisville, was a CPT grad.
