Southeastern Technical Institute received approval from the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education Office for Career/Vocational Technical Education for two new course offerings in Advanced Manufacturing. Students can apply to Machine Tool Technology or Metal Fabrication & Joining Technologies. Each 900 hour course will be divided into three individual modules of 300 hours each. Students will have the opportunity to learn everything from introductory to advanced skills and can elect to take one, two or all three modules depending on their experience and the needs of employers. 

“The Baker-Polito Administration developed the Advanced Manufacturing Certificate Program as a way to give adults who want to learn new skills in advanced manufacturing an opportunity to enroll in a program with a flexible timetable that would be eligible for financial aid. Adult students will be eligible for federal Pell grants, state MassGrants, and other scholarships.”
