Abstract:
The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering's (CNSE) Smart System Technology and Commercialization Center of Excellence (STC) and Finger Lakes Community College (FLCC) today announced a partnership to establish an innovative education and training program that will help build the highly skilled nanotechnology workforce critical to driving high-tech economic growth in Western New York.

CNSE’s STC and FLCC partner to launch cleanroom operator training program: Moser Baer Technologies anticipates hiring students to support its expansion at CNSE’s STC

Victor, NY | Posted on October 6th, 2011

FLCC has begun accepting applications for the two-week cleanroom operator training program, scheduled to begin in January, with classroom education at the FLCC Victor Campus Center and cleanroom tours and activities at CNSE's STC in Canandaigua.

Students who complete the program will be prepared for entry-level work in high-tech research, development and manufacturing facilities that require environments free of pollutants to produce precision components, including those used in products ranging from smart phones, laptops and televisions to medical devices, light-emitting diodes (LEDs), and weaponry and protective gear for the military.

In developing the course, FLCC and CNSE's STC worked with Moser Baer Technologies, which began operations at CNSE's STC in May 2010. The company is engaged in the business of designing and installing a manufacturing pilot line for OLED (organic light emitting diode) lighting panels, as well as other activities relative to advanced solid-state lighting technology.

"As CNSE's Smart System Technology and Commercialization Center continues to build its high-tech capabilities and deploy them to attract new jobs and companies to the Greater Rochester region, it is critical to have a highly skilled, highly trained workforce in place to support and enable technological and economic growth," said Paul Tolley, CNSE Vice President for Disruptive Technologies and Executive Director of CNSE's STC. "We look forward to working with Finger Lakes Community College and Moser Baer Technologies to ensure that this program provides innovative education and training through which residents can build exciting and productive careers in the growing nanotechnology industry."

"Statistics show a demand for middle-skill jobs, those that require more than high school but less than a four-year degree," said Lynn Freid, manager of training and business development at FLCC. "We're starting to see that now in the region, and FLCC's programs, such as this partnership with CNSE's STC, can provide the training for people to get the skills that match emerging jobs."

"Moser Baer Technologies anticipates hiring three trained qualified cleanroom operators beginning in the first quarter of 2012," said David Newman, vice president of Moser Baer. "Over the next two years, as we ramp up our pilot line activities, we anticipate the need to hire additional qualified cleanroom operators and other staff."

Cleanroom operators must know how to properly prepare themselves and dress to work in a cleanroom environment; how to monitor and adjust expensive equipment that is highly sensitive; and how to adhere to environmental and occupational health and safety standards, among other responsibilities.

To be eligible for the program, students must be legally authorized to work in the United States and be 18 or older with a driver's license and a high school diploma or GED. Tuition is $780, including all course materials. Tuition assistance may be available through programs for dislocated or unemployed workers and low-income youth.

Entry into the program also requires completion of one of the orientation sessions, scheduled for Oct. 18 and 25 and Nov. 1 and 8, at 9 a.m. at the FLCC Professional Development and Continuing Education, Room B128, 3325 Marvin Sands Drive in Canandaigua.

Space in the class is limited. To register for orientation, contact Colleen Aiezza at FLCC at (585) 785-1906 or .
