St. Louis Community College’s Workforce Solutions Group and the Emerson Center for Engineering & Manufacturing formed a joint venture with the Boeing Company to develop and provide a pre-employment training program in order to create an ongoing pool of assembly mechanic employee candidates for Boeing. The college, in consultation with Boeing, established assessment scores required for entry into the program. Workforce skills assessed are applied math, locating information, reading for information, and observation. STLCC currently provides a five-week training course that focuses in sheet metal assembly mechanic work, but also offers a 10-week training program that includes composite and electrical training as well.
