As more manufacturing companies, such as Samsung Austin Semiconductor, seek to hire more skilled workers, Skillpoint Alliance is working to fulfill that workforce with programs like its Certified Production Technician (CPT)
Skillpoint Alliance, which is one of our strategic partners, started its CPT program in March 2020 with the assistance of Samsung Austin Semiconductor and a grant through the Texas Talent Connection. When the pandemic struck a few weeks into their first class, the organization pivoted and turned to virtual learning. Fast forward three years later, they've trained 120 students, who have gone on to jobs with our company or elsewhere in the manufacturing industry.
To further improve the students' learning experience, Skillpoint Alliance recently upgraded its CPT classroom with items such as 3D printers, a Skill Boss and more. Skillpoint Alliance's program manager and electrical instructor, Matthew Singer, helped transform a storage space into the new lab.
