LCCC Training for Amazon Robotics

LCCC was selected as one of four training centers in the United States to provide Advanced Manufacturing Training for Amazon employees. This partnership is part of Amazon’s initiative called Upskilling 2025 to provide free skills training to 100,000 of its employees.

 

More than 250 students representing 12 states from coast to coast will complete the Amazon Mechatronics and Robotics Apprenticeship Program from June 2020 through June 2021. Over the 12 weeks of training, students receive comprehensive instruction and lab assessments in Industrial Electricity, Mechanical Components, Fluid Power and PLCs. This training provides a pathway to careers in industrial automation for Amazon’s next generation of distribution and fulfillment centers. Students utilize the Amatrol eLearning and equipment in the new 2,000-square-foot lab located in the Technology Center. Next year, we plan to graduate 320 apprentices in this program.
