SAU Tech to Offer 8-Week Summer CPT Program

Earn the certifications need to go to work in just 8 weeks!

This summer Southern Arkansas University Tech is offering an 8-week program with certification through the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council which is recognized by advanced manufacturers like Aerojet Rocketdyne and Lockheed Martin. The Certified Production Technician prepares students for entry-level production work and most employers will waive the one year experience requirement for completers. SAU Tech is offering the program this summer in the evening from 4:30 pm to 9:30 pm, Monday through Thursday and is providing grant funds to pay for the cost of the MSSC certifications. This schedule allows students to continue day jobs and take advantage of weekends during the summer. SAU Tech Chancellor, Dr. Jason Morrison, says “The CPT program is perfect for students graduating in May who want to go to work by the fall to earn a livable wage. The program also folds into the advanced manufacturing career path created by SAU Tech that leads to an associate degree in several areas or to a bachelor degree at SAU. It’s just a great opportunity for anyone who wants to prepare for a career in advanced manufacturing.” Anyone interested can call SAU Tech at 870-574-4558. This program starts on May 31.
