NWTC, MMC Shipbuilding Training Agreement

Thursday, December 22, 2011
Hundreds of current and future shipbuilders will be trained in Marinette pursuant to a contract signed today by Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC) and Marinette Marine Corporation (MMC). “At Northeast Wisconsin Technical College, we are committed to meeting the marine manufacturing industry’s need for skilled shipbuilding workers,” said Dr. H. Jeffrey Rafn, NWTC president. “We are truly pleased to build on our  partnership with Marinette Marine and provide additional training opportunities for its workforce.”
Through the two-year agreement, NWTC will provide 130,000 hours of training to MMC new hires and incumbent workers. Focusing on electricians, shipfitters, welders, and pipefitters, the training will be provided at the NWTC Marinette campus, MMC facilities, and at the new NWTC North Coast Marine Manufacturing Center which is scheduled to open February 1, 2012, on Main Street in Marinette. The College has hired a training center coordinator and several more instructors to work with area marine and general manufacturing employers to address incumbent workforce training needs.
“MMC has a high demand for skilled workers, and we are fortunate to have the opportunity of teaming with NWTC and NCMMA to meet these needs,” said Chuck Goddard, MMC President and CEO.
Working with NCMMA’s shipbuilding companies, which collectively employ more than 6,000 people locally, NWTC created marine manufacturing training options beyond incumbent worker training. Designed to create a pipeline of skilled workers, the NWTC Marine Construction technical diploma and Marine Engineering Technology associate degree programs started this summer and fall at the Green Bay and Marinette campuses. Nine students are graduating from the Marine Construction program this month.
