Mohawk Valley Community College workshops for Wolfspeed Equipment Technicians develops core skills contributing to a successful workforce. The location of the college in the Mohawk Valley, benefits students and Wolfspeed to offer opportunities and contribute to the community.
AIM, a component of Mohawk Valley Community College, which is part of the New York MEP and the MEP National Network™, used its 75-year history as a technical college to connect resources and local expertise to develop a customized training program that is recurring as Wolfspeed hires new employees and as they open the doors to the new chip fabrication facility.
The 10-day, 13-module “hands on” training program was launched in the fall of 2021 and continues to be provided on demand as Wolfspeed grows in the Mohawk Valley Region. The class participants will acquire a learned skill that enables them to operate, troubleshoot, and problem solve electrical systems, mechanical systems, tooling and calibration, helium lead detection equipment, and vacuum systems. All these key skills are required to work in the micro-electronics industry.
