     Attendees will have the opportunity to see demonstrations of electrical panel builds, robotic program logic control and equipment running, such as the CNC machine.  In addition, they will be able to speak with representatives from the manufacturing companies that belong to the NKY Fame Chapter.

Those accepted into the Advanced Manufacturing Technician apprentice program will begin training in Fall 2015. They will receive hands-on and classroom training and access to high-paying advanced manufacturing careers in the region.
