Getting a job with a great future is happening right now in Cabarrus, Rowan, and Iredell Counties through the NC Manufacturing Institute. Manufacturers are interested in interviewing Certified Production Technicians who have the skills and knowledge that they desire, and we invite them to meet every graduating class at the end of the 8- or 16-week training program. People interested in learning more about scholarship-funded training for manufacturing jobs in Rowan, Cabarrus and Iredell counties are encouraged to complete an interest form to receive a callback or email with more information.  You will learn about manufacturing job opportunities, training classes available to become a Certified Production Technician, and scholarships to fund the training and certifications.
