Manufacturing Foundations Training


MANUFACTURING FOUNDATIONS is a 9-week class taught collaboratively by Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS) Adult Education, EMERGE, and Hennepin Technical College (HTC). 

MPS offers Adult Basic Ed (ABE) in math, reading and study skills. EMERGE addresses higher education systems, financial literacy and coordinates opportunities to visit local employers. HTC faculty provide certifications in OSHA 10 and Forklift Operation along with in-demand coursework such as Good Manufacturing Practices. 

All graduates are expected to complete this coursework to build skills and stackable credentials. Training also helps students decide if they are ready for post-secondary education in advanced manufacturing and if Welding or CNC Machining matches their career goals. 

Graduates are ready for jobs in basic manufacturing, warehouse, shipping and receiving, assembly and similar positions, typically starting at $12-15/hour.
