Here are other activities and events in the Haverhill area:
Participants needed for manufacturing program: Northern Essex Community College is looking for two dozen men or women to enroll in a free, 25-week, Advanced Manufacturing Training Program.
Information sessions will be held from 3 to 6 p.m. on Feb. 18 at NECC Riverwalk, 360 Merrimack St., Lawrence, and on Feb. 20 at NECC’s Haverhill campus, 100 Elliot St. These sessions are free to attend.
Participants can chose to enroll in the basic machine track offered in partnership with Whittier Regional Vocational Technical High School or the basic electronic track offered in partnership with the Greater Lawrence Technical School. Tuition is grant funded.
The program begins April 22 and ends in late October. Classes are from 3 to 8 p.m., four to five days a week. This program, which was modeled on a similar but shorter NECC pilot program which resulted in jobs for those who completed the program, will prepare participants for jobs as Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machine operators, CNC machine technicians, electro-mechanical assemblers, electrical and electronic technicians, and test technicians.
Graduates of the pilot program have been hired by Arwood Machine Inc. in Newburyport, which is a manufacturer of ultra-precision metal components used in aerospace, communications and defense, and AW Chesterton in Groveland, a global leader in the manufacture of polymer and mechanical seals.
