The Kim B. Williams Advanced Manufacturing Training Center (AMTC) at TCC provides area industry with a one stop center focusing on customized training and development needs.
The AMTC at TCC recognizes the challenges facing companies in today's manufacturing and industrial sector. Florida's Big-bend area is home to numerous world-class manufacturers and industries who live the ever increasing daily challenge of competing in the new global landscape. At TCC, we understand the technology and tools necessary to compete in the "lean manufacturing" world. We are aware of the many benefits in teaming and are committed to tailoring services to meet local industry needs.
An increasingly competitive worldwide environment faces all manufacturers and industries today. Knowledge and flexibility are key. This challenge creates the need to respond quickly to change, yet balance the collaborative relations between all business partners.
Your primary partner is your workforce. Educating the existing and emerging workforces to be technically skilled as well as flexible to meet your demands builds a fundamentally strong team. By partnering with resources in your own backyard, you can compete in the world-wide market. The Division of Workforce Development Team is here to customize training to make your vision a reality.
