DANBURY, Conn. – Naugatuck Valley Community College’s Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center is hosting three information sessions this month for students interested in earning manufacturing certification.
Classes in the program can be taken in Danbury.

Students who earn their two-semester certificate in manufacturing machine technology will be qualified to work in machine technology and CNC manufacturing environments. The certificate provides desired work skills by combining hands-on instruction, interactive lab experiences, theory and possible on-site manufacturing internships. The college currently offers daytime and evening manufacturing cohorts in Waterbury and an evening cohort at Henry Abbott Technical High School in Danbury.
Graduates are prepared to work on the shop floor with knowledge in blueprint reading, manufacturing processes, CNC and more than 400 contact hours with state-of-the-art machinery. Additionally, credits earned in this certificate may apply to the College of Technology's Technology Studies advanced manufacturing degree option, which offers seamless transfer to several four-year universities, including Central Connecticut State University.
Students who enroll in these programs may be eligible for financial aid. In addition, these certificates are Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act-approved and qualify for assistance under the Veterans Retraining Programs. The program curriculum is available at www.nv.edu/amt.
