Industrial Operations Technician
The Industrial Operations Technician program is the first of its kind of Georgia. Students enrolled in the new program will be exposed to a variety of manufacturing principles, including Lean Six Sigma, operations management, industrial mechanics and interpersonal skills.
The certificate of credit was developed in collaboration with members of the Albany-Dougherty Industry Roundtable, a CEO-level forum of major manufacturers and distribution centers in Albany-Dougherty County. The roundtable, an initiative of the Albany-Dougherty EDC, includes Albany Green Energy, Coats & Clark’s craft manufacturing facility, Coats & Clark’s North American Distribution Center, Marine Depot Maintenance Command at Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany, Procter & Gamble, Mars Chocolate North America, MillerCoors, Pfizer, SASCO Chemical Group and Tara Foods.
This new program aligns the needs of Albany-Dougherty County’s industries with the training opportunities available, thereby further strengthening the local and regional labor force and making it more attractive to prospective and existing industries.
