About PCC OMIC Training Center

The OMIC Training Center is part of the Oregon Manufacturing Innovation Center initiative, which brings together industry, academia, and government to address the problems facing Oregon manufacturers through a combination of applied research and development and workforce training. The unique collaborative model supports the development of innovative technologies, processes, and materials, as well as the skilled workforce needed to fill high-demand advanced manufacturing jobs.

The Training Center will offer a variety of manufacturing-related training programs ranging from traditional career and technical education training to apprenticeship models that combine on-the-job training with classroom and lab instruction. With an emphasis on craftsmanship, professionalism, and placing graduates into high-demand manufacturing jobs, students can complete an apprenticeship program and/or an associate’s degree or certificate leading to an advanced degree.
