Industrial Sewing Certificate Program Orientation
Today was a historic day for DG3. After almost two years of blood, sweat and tears, the Industrial Sewing Certificate Program orientation happened today and it was a great success. Many potential and curious students, Michigan Works!, other workforce partners and cut and sew manufacturers came together to see the classroom and learn about what the program has to offer. The orientation covered how this program came to be, a quick overview of what will be covered during the course and a tour of the class and the industrial machines everyone will be working with. It was a fantastic morning, and for those interested in the program who missed the orientation or would like more information, we have some fast facts below.
-The program starts on Monday, October 13 and is a 6-week course.
-The classes will take place Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
-Course topics will include, but are not limited to, workplace conduct and safety, types of machines and fabrics, machine control, quality control, pay procedures and work methods.
-If you qualify, you can receive funding from Michigan Works! by contacting your local Michigan Works! agency and specifically asking for the Industrial Sewing Certificate Program, and asking to be placed in their orientation. The orientations are filling up fast but if you tell them you are interested in the Industrial Sewing Certificate Program, they will fit you into the next orientation.
-The program is $2,000 for those of you who would like to take the course and can afford to pay for it yourself.
-Right now, the program is during the day but once the first class has completed the program, Henry Ford College M-TEC will be ramping up evening classes.
