On October 4, 2013, Cerritos College hosted National Manufacturing Day to educate the community on manufacturing, programs available, and opportunities in the industry. Over 100 high school students, Educators, Industry Professionals, job seekers, and other local community members attended the event. At the event, the Cerritos College departments for Plastics & Composites, Welding, Machine Tool Technology, Woodworking, Automotive Repair, and Engineering Design Technology provided guests a tour of their facilities and interactive demonstrations.
"Cerritos College Technology department is preparing students for those manufacturing jobs,” said California Forward’s, Cheryl Getuiza. “Students can get on the job training and certifications within a year and a half. Folks at Cerritos College strongly believe that opening their doors to the community on Manufacturing Day restores the image of the Manufacturing industry and raises awareness among those can could be the next generation of workers.”
The California Economic Summit recognized the Cerritos College Technology Division by creating a video featuring the programs and opportunities available to students. The video can be watched at http://www.caeconomy.org/
