CNC Training

Financial assistance may be available. For more information, contact CNC Career Specialist, Angie Ross, at 231-439-6265. These “Just in Time” trainings are designed to meet the immediate hiring needs of local employers. The curriculum is uniquely targeted to teach the most in-demand skills.


CCE’s Ergonomics - Safety Training is designed to educate individuals on how to prevent injuries among workers who do a range of motion on their jobs. 

Do you repeat the same task throughout the workday? Are work areas awkward or stationary positions? Do you lift heavy or awkward items, use excessive force to perform tasks or are you exposed to excessive vibration or extreme temperatures? Then, this training is for a workforce like yours.

Eligible businesses include accommodations, construction, hospitals and long-term health care.  The CCE instructor will bring the training, materials and practical tips. We invite you to call CCE at (231)348-6613 to schedule free ergonomic training at their location. The MIOSHA CET Grant funds training.
