Milacron LLC has hired all 10 graduates of its pilot machinist training program, which is run in partnership with UC Clermont College.


The 16-week certificate program, designed to train workers in advanced manufacturing skills and provide them with hands-on experience, tools and payment for their time, was conducted near UC East, in the former Ford plant.
 


The 10 graduates ranged in age from 18 to 52 and had a wide range of industrial skills and experience, but no machining experience, when they entered the program. For some, that prior experience translated directly to the new job for which they were training, such as precision competencies that are useful in quality control or inspection and a talent for drawing that relates directly to computer-aided design (CAD). All graduates were from the southwest region of the state and are now working full-time as machinists at Milacron.
