Summary

Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) has partnered with Siemens Energy for more than a decade to provide training for employees. Siemens recently completed a $350-million expansion to build and refurbish gas turbines, and has expanded its partnership with CPCC.  Between Sept. 2010 and Feb. 2012, more than 600 classes at CPCC have been provided to more than 2,700 pre-employment candidates and employees. In addition, CPCC reached out to another area of Siemens Global to become certified as the first North Carolina community college to offer the Siemens Mechatronic Systems Certification Program. The college sent four instructors to the Siemens Technik Akademie-Berlin to become Level I and Level 11 certified to offer the Siemens Mechatronic Systems certification to local companies, students, and apprentices.
