Technical Training Lab

At the Technical Training Lab, you and your employees have access to cutting-edge manufacturing equipment for competency-based technical training. With machining, tool and die, injection molding, welding, robotics, and PLC systems, as well as more than 15 certificate programs offered at the lab, you can book time or classes at the lab to meet all of your development and training needs. The lab is located on the Columbus Campus of Columbus State Community College.

We will work with you to customize a training plan that best suits your company and employee needs. Training is available in the Technical Training Lab, as well as on-site at your facilities. Schedule sessions when they work for you – we’re available during business hours, in the evenings, and on weekends.

Virtual Manufacturing Training

The ripple effects of the COVID-19 crisis are significantly and rapidly changing the way we work and do business. In a time that calls for creative problem-solving, the Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) at Columbus State is narrowing its focus to bridge the gap between now and the surge in demand that will follow this disruption.

Online, Short-Term Training for Your Employees

Columbus State has deep roots in Central Ohio’s manufacturing industry, the backbone of the region’s economy. The MEP at Columbus State recognizes how vital manufacturing companies and their employees are to Central Ohio.

That’s why we’re partnering with digital training providers Tooling U-SME and Amatrol to offer new online training programs paired with one-on-one virtual coaching by our faculty and professional staff. We’re underwriting the majority of the cost for the program to make it more accessible to small and midsize manufacturing companies during this time when they need it most.

This online training will allow your employees to upskill in preparation for a new industry landscape in the coming months while keeping them engaged and up-to-date in the meantime. The curriculum consists of 90 days’ worth of coursework, and participants set their own pace.
