Dear Industry Colleagues,
In October, I sent out a survey to gather information about what type of skills manufacturing companies needed for their industrial maintenance employees.

We received a strong response (over 21 companies - see below) and used that for our first industry meeting in November. We are now looking for more input and would like to get 30 - 40 additional companies across a wide range of industry sectors for our next meeting on February 2 (save the date).

If you could take 10 minutes to fill out the survey at

this will help us out tremendously. 

The responses we receive will help guide the community colleges in developing new classes to train students (and existing employees) as industrial maintenance technicians / mechanics.
