In what it describes as an effort to help bridge the growing tech skills gap in the United States, DeVry University (Downers Grove, Illinois) is expanding DeVry Bootcamp to include 11 online Advanced Manufacturing Programs in collaboration with 180 Skills Inc. (Indianapolis, Indiana), an online career and technical education company for the advanced manufacturing industry. These skill-based manufacturing training programs are designed to help students learn the technical skills and develop the competencies needed for entry-level advanced manufacturing roles, including machining, quality control, safety and automation across a variety of industries in as little as two to three months.
Available online to individuals in Illinois, Ohio, Indiana and Michigan, the Advanced Manufacturing Programs offer a blend of step-by-step explanations, interactive visuals, simulations and assessments enabling students to master the program materials efficiently and at their own pace. Specific programs include Advanced Manufacturing Technician, CNC Lathe Production Technician, CNC Machining Center Production Technician and others.
“With the resurgence in American manufacturing, it’s imperative students are trained to meet the growing demand for high-tech manufacturing skills. DeVry Bootcamp is here to help both students and employers bridge this skills gap,” says Shantanu Bose, Ph.D., provost with DeVry University.
