Project IMPACT

Innovations Moving People to Achieve Certified Training
  • Project IMPACT Central Community College (CCC) is leading a partnership of five Nebraska community colleges including Metropolitan Community College (MCC), Southeast Community College (SCC), Northeast Community College (NECC), and Western Nebraska Community College (WNCC) in a grant project to expand and improve their abilities to deliver education and career training programs to U.S. Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) eligible workers, veterans, unemployed and underemployed workers, and traditional students.

    Project IMPACT aims to increase the achievement of certifications, credentials, diplomas, and degrees through blended learning by combining experienced instructors, advanced labs, and modern technology through a new Diversified Manufacturing Technology Certificate. The Nebraska Diversified Manufacturing Technology Certificate offers courses that align with the nationally-recognized Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC) Certified Production Technician (CPT) credential featuring:

    • Introduction to Industrial Safety
    • Introduction to Quality and Continuous Improvement
    • Introduction to Manufacturing Technology
    • Introduction to Maintenance Technology

    Project IMPACT will use a unique blended learning approach in the courses, including 3D/4D graphic simulations of manufacturing equipment and industrial environments, a traditional classroom experience, and online coursework. Mathematics, reading comprehension, and writing will also be covered in the context of the certificate courses for those needing a refresher.
