In response to the developing COVID-19 virus, Tri-C leadership has taken action to continue to delivering academic services while protecting the health of our students, staff and community.
As of March 20, 2020, all administrative staff will continue to conduct business and provide the same excellent service to our partners, students and community remotely in order to meet the safe distancing ordnance and prohibit the spread of COVID-19.
All manufacturing training courses will transition to an online or blended learning format which consists of online training and if applicable include onsite face-to-face training. Students enrolled during the Spring 2020 will have the option of continued onsite face-to-face training if their course included onsite labs. Students may volunteer to participate in the onsite face-to-face labs. All safety precautions will be taken for onsite learning. The College will notify students via College assigned email.

Cuyahoga Community College’s Manufacturing programs have been developed in conjunction with industry professionals, indicating our graduates can immediately enter the workforce. Recent studies performed by the United States Department of Labor and the National Association of Manufacturers show a need for workers trained in advanced manufacturing and the demand is expected to grow as the manufacturing sector expands.
Training programs are up-to-date and range from 32-hour workshops to 500-hour in-depth programs that lead to industry-recognized credentials, certifications and apprenticeships. College credit toward an associate degree is awarded in specific programs. For contract training, courses can be delivered by our instructors at your facility.
