Machining Program Designs Skilled Workers

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — Not only is the Excellence in Training Center used by individuals who want to explore a new career or learn new skills, but Alex Hertzer, assistant director of the Mahoning Valley Manufacturers Coalition, says his organization’s manufacturing partners also use the lab for workforce development.

MVMC matches training programs at Eastern Gateway with manufacturers when they need their employees to develop new skills and learn the latest equipment.

“It’s vital,” Hertzer says. “To be able to have a full machining and welding program right here in Youngstown is amazing. This facility is invaluable to the community – to be able to offer these services to new employees and incumbent employees too.”
