Training for individuals interested in Mechatronics - a field that integrates mechanical and electronic components with hydraulics, pneumatics, electronics and computer controls in manufacturing.  This 300 hour program  includes a learning community for students enrolled. Training is free for those who qualify and test into a 10th grade math level. Those who score between seventh- and 10th-grade math levels have the option of participating in a 10-week remediation period, to include study and tutoring time, before being retested.  Once the non-credit program is complete, if the candidate matriculates  to CCAC, seventeen credits will be awarded.  This program has served as a springboard for the Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) statewide award.
