The West Central Ohio Manufacturing Consortium (WCOMC) is a recognized asset for area manufacturers to address their skill training needs and for area residents to develop their skills for employment in manufacturing. For manufacturers, membership in the WCOMC provides access to the records of the students who successfully complete a Manufacturing Skills Standards Council (MSSC) basic course or one of the specified certificates or degrees at Rhodes State College, assuring a skilled employee prospect for hiring. Access to this pool of students reduces a manufacturer’s costs associated with hiring and training workers.
Rhodes State College and the WCOMC are currently partners with the Northwest Ohio Manufacturing Extension Partnership, which provides the products, services, and assistance that are dedicated to the productivity, growth, and global competitiveness of Ohio manufacturers. This partnership broadens the access of training and service programs to manufacturers in the region.
