Lorain County Community College Tackling the Skills Gap

Lorain County Community College, one of the 1,500 FANUC America partner schools, educates advanced automation students using the “Train Ohio Earn & Learn” method. The program has a work-study approach where students can continue to work their full-time jobs while learning new advanced automation skills. While designing the program, the faculty found FANUC was used overwhelmingly in the local area, so incorporated FANUC automation products to fully prepare their students for these in-demand jobs.
