Teaching Skills to Compete in the Automated World
Community College of Philadelphia has a re-training program that teaches workers new skills to get in front of the robot revolution.
“Someone is going to have to make the robots, somebody is going to have to maintain the robots,” said Matthew Hill, CNC Machining Instructor at CCP. “I don’t know if automation is necessarily taking jobs, but it is certainly changing the landscape.”
Automotive students at CCP are specifically learning how to make precision robot parts for medical defense and aerospace, proficiencies that Hill explained will keep workers at the “…forefront of automation, instead of being replaced by it.”
