Three yellow rounds

The City of Barrie and Georgian College in partnership with County of Simcoe and the Simcoe Muskoka Workforce Development Board received funding to deliver part-time (online and in-person), industry recognized micro-credentials from July 2022 to March 2023 in the following subject areas: 

  • Fundamental shop skills
  • Precision Machining
  • Hydraulics/pneumatics
  • CNC
  • Industrial Automation
  • Robotics
  • Quality Management
  • Leadership in Manufacturing

The Skills Development Fund (made possible by the Government of Ontario) is a way to address skills development and labour shortages within the manufacturing sector by offering educational opportunities at no cost to the participant. Through this, job seekers can find a career path in manufacturing with local employers and help existing employees upskill.
