Train for a new career in Plastics Manufacturing while working in your current job. All classes are offered online or on the weekend. Lake Land College is the only college to offer plastics manufacturing technician training in a 180-mile radius.
The Plastics Manufacturing Program is designed to prepare students for entry-level jobs in the plastics industry. Significant time with injection and extrusion molding processes and equipment coupled with basic maintenance and automation skills allows for several positions in plastics manufacturing.
Interested students are encouraged to attend an informational meeting on September 18 in West Building Room 120 from 3-6 p.m.
The courses will be offered online with weekend labs in Paris at the Vo-Tech Center, at the old high school. Classes start September 30, 2019.
The program is intended to promote current employees in the plastics field and provide new students with a job soon after completing the program. Area companies such as National American Lighting and Libman Co. have already dedicated resources and funds to get the program started.
