Cuyahoga Community College Veterans Initiatives

Friday 5/13/2016:


We received recent credit and financial aid approval for these new stackable credentials! This is an exciting opportunity as there are 3 new classes that will launch in Fall 2016. Those new classes are ISET 2140 Non Destructive Testing, ISET 2150 Robotic Welding and ISET 2160 Structural Fabrication. Our partners at Case Western Reserve, Lincoln Electric and American Welding Society are assisting us with the delivery of course content, student industry tours, industrial art development for STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Arts and Math) initiatives, in demand national welding certifications along with exciting articulation agreements to 4 year colleges.

We are seeking Veterans and TAA (Trade Adjusted Assistance) dislocated workers as a priority. We are going to offer prior learning assessments for relevant military occupations, TAA occupations and certifications that can be evaluated for credit toward a degree. We need dedicated participants to complete these credentials and receive our job placement assistance services. Currently there are 50+ welding related openings within 2 of our local partners plus our partner base is still growing! Please review and distribute the attachment to pass the word about these new exciting opportunities.

As a deliverable for our Department of Labor grant, Veteran outreach is a priority and efforts must be reported. Please notify me of how many Veteran and dislocated worker contacts have been distributed this flyer and the date of distribution for my quarterly reporting. Thank you so much for your ongoing assistance to serve our service members and trade adjusted displaced workers. I look forward to working with you more to create future success stories. Feel free to schedule a tour with me to see our advanced manufacturing equipment, labs, virtual training and hybrid (online content with hands on student labs) curriculum.

So many exciting opportunities are happening in this industry. I hope to hear back from you soon. If you have any questions, please let me know. Salute!
