Thank you for your interest in Oregon Tradeswomen’s Women in Metals & Manufacturing training program.

Oregon has seen an increased demand for skilled manufacturing workers. To most thoroughly prepare the women who seek our training for high-skill, high-wage careers in the skilled trades, Oregon Tradeswomen is now incorporating manufacturing career preparation into our 8-week, state certified pre-apprenticeship training program, the Trades and Apprenticeship Career Class (TACC).

Students who enroll in our TACC program will receive an introduction to manufacturing  careers and then have the option of extending their training commitment an additional 1-3 weeks to enroll in the Industrial Fabrication track.

The Industrial Fabrication Track is additional training providing a targeted introduction to and hands-on experience with welding, machining, shop math, and blueprint reading in order to prepare students to enter skilled careers in the booming manufacturing industry. This additional training track runs up to 3-weeks and will offer up to 80 hours of welding education. The successful completion of this training track meets the qualifications to take a Flux Core certification test.

To get started, please sign up for an Information Session about Oregon Tradeswomen’s TACC Class.
