OMIC Training Center Virtual Tour – October 2020

The new building has been designed to support the hands-on “earn and learn” apprenticeship program, which will help fill the region’s critical shortage of skilled workers. This facility to be built in Scappoose, Oregon will house training facilities for registered apprenticeship programs in Machinist, CNC Lathe Operator, CNC Mill Operator, Welder/Fabricator, and Mechatronics Technician.

The Training Center will complement the new Oregon Manufacturing Innovation Center Research and Development (OMIC R&D). OMIC R&D is a collaboration of industry, higher education and government focused on creating a world-class facility that combines applied research and development and workforce training to serve the region’s advanced manufacturers, specifically the metals manufacturing industry.
