Ashland County West Holmes Career Center RAMTEC Program Breeds Success

ASHLAND – Opportunities abound for people who are willing to work, and the hard-working students of the Ashland County West Holmes Career Center’s RAMTEC program are entering productive careers.

RAMTEC stands for Robotics and Advanced Manufacturing Technology Education Collaborative. Robotics and Advanced Manufacturing Instructor Jim Simmering explained how the program works for students who are willing to do the work.

The ACWHCC RAMTEC program offers 65 welding qualification certifications, along with robotics and other certifications, as well as fluid power, electrical and manual machining.

“After two years in the program, students have such a wide range of learning and so many different paths they can take,” Simmering said. “We get calls weekly from employers looking for student workers. You can’t drive far without seeing signs of hiring companies. They can go into tool and die, electrical maintenance, computer numerical control (CNC) planner/operator.”
