CULLMAN – The Cullman County Board of Education (CCBOE), Wallace State Community College, and automotive parts manufacturer REHAU will hold a reception on Sept. 12 at 11:30 a.m. in the Peggy Smith Conference Room at REHAU’s Cullman office to honor two graduates of the multi-agency joint venture Polymer Specialist Apprenticeship program.
CCBOE students Steven Ogle and Nathan Hannah recently completed the program, and will go to work at REHAU. Students receive paid on-the-job training at REHAU while in the program.
Wallace State offers the following description of the Polymer Specialist program:
“Wallace State, Cullman County Schools, and REHAU have collaborated to develop a premier short-term certificate option for Cullman County students through the REHAU Academy. The goal of the program is to produce the best-trained, Polymer Specialists in the industry through a unique educational program in which multiple disciplines will be combined into a systems approach for troubleshooting and resolving problems in an automated manufacturing plant. The curriculum will provide students with knowledge and hands-on training in machining, electricity, pneumatics, PLC, robotics, injection molding, and automation. The program consists of five semesters of training in which coursework is mixed with paid on-the-job training in the REHAU manufacturing facility.”
The CCBOE’s Dr. TJ Franey said, “The apprenticeship program is a great opportunity for our students and we are very proud of their accomplishments.”
