Manufacturing Careers Program

Building Your Career in Manufacturing

The Manufacturing Careers Program (MCP) connects  pre-screened job seekers to employers with entry level job openings. The program components are built around the workforce needs of area manufacturers.

Job seekers participate in an industry- infused career path that begins with validation of foundational and technical skills through assessments, attainment of an industry-recognized credential, and participation in a CNC Basics course demonstrating career readiness for entry level work in manufacturing.

Employers who hire MCP  participants may use wage subsidies provided by the program for entry level  on-the-job training and internships.  Interested employers can learn more about this wage subsidy by joining the Advanced Manufacturing Employer Partnership (AMEP).

Funding is provided by the Workforce Solutions Collaborative of Metro Hartford.
