Complete or significant portion of tuition cost covered for eligible participants

Macomb Community College is holding information sessions Wednesday, Jan. 10, and Tuesday, Feb. 6, about advanced manufacturing training programs in several high-demand career pathways: controls technician, robot programmer, mechanical maintenance specialist and robotics technician. For those living south of 16 Mile Road in Macomb County who meet other eligibility factors, all or a significant portion of tuition may be covered by the college’s PRISM Project, which is funded by the Ralph C.

The programs will be conducted beginning in January through July 2018, ranging from 13 to 19 weeks. The training programs are available with either a Monday through Friday daytime schedule or an evening schedule that also includes a full day commitment on Saturdays.  The training programs include both foundational skills and manufacturing training components.

The information sessions will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 10, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m., and Feb. 6, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m., at the college’s M-TEC facility, 7900 Tank Avenue, Warren, Mich. 48092. To register or for more information, call 586.498.4100 or email

Funded by a grant from the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation, the PRISM (Prosperity Reaches into Southern Macomb) Project supports training for adults in advanced manufacturing, outreach to introduce and engage high school students in information technology fields and a pilot on enhancing employer engagement in sustaining workforce training programs. The project is designed to help to create systemic change in educational attainment, employment and income in south Macomb County.
