Oakland Community College recently entered new agreements with seven companies in Oakland County to provide training and funds for training 693 new employees under the Michigan New Jobs Training (MNJT) program.
OCC will provide the training in a variety of areas to include Advanced Manufacturing, Quality, Leadership and Product Design and Development at the following companies:
Total Quality Logistics and Mahindra North America are Troy companies. Oerlikon Balzers Coating, Orion Township; Nemo Capital Partners, Farmington Hills; Hirata, New Hudson; STEC, USA, Madison Heights and ABB, Inc., Auburn Hills. Combined, MNJT agreements with these Oakland County companies total $1.5 million.
“The College’s public and private sector partnerships allow us to play a key role in the state’s ability to attract and retain talent,” said OCC Chancellor Dr. Timothy Meyer. “OCC provides the customized training companies need while funding from the MNJT program is an incentive that makes the difference.”
MNJT enables companies working with community colleges to divert the Michigan income taxes of new employees to provide new jobs training. Since 2011, OCC has awarded more than $10 million in training incentives to train employees at 17 companies in Oakland County.
