PCC is leading the OMIC Training Center initiative, which is developing work-based learning models, like registered apprenticeships, which combine on-the-job training with classroom and lab instruction. Leveraging industry-driven curriculum and quality PCC instruction, students and job seekers are able to complete an apprenticeship program and/or an associate degree or certificate leading to an advanced degree.

The Industry Outreach & Training Coordinator position provides an exciting opportunity for an energetic and collaborative professional committed to developing and managing strategic partnerships between PCC and regional advanced manufacturing companies. The Coordinator’s role is to work with local employers and stakeholders to identify training needs and promote PCC OMIC training programs, like Registered Apprenticeships and other solutions, that meet the hiring and training requirements of local and regional manufacturers.

Energetic and solution-oriented, a successful Coordinator must bring a strong record of developing and managing strategic industry partnerships, as well as demonstrated success in consultative sales and marketing. It will be critical for the Coordinator to balance, adapt, and respond to changing work environments and industry expectations, and clearly communicate with and between industry, academic, and community partners.

The Center is a highly visible, highly anticipated endeavor, which will require on-going industry engagement. The Coordinator’s ability to comprehend the unique needs of industry partners and promote effective training solutions will be essential to the success of the PCC OMIC Training Center and its mission.

- Develops and advances strategic partnerships between regional manufacturers and Portland Community College’s OMIC training programs. Works with manufacturing leaders to help identify their priority workforce training and hiring needs.
- Coordinates manufacturing training efforts with other PCC-related programs and services. Communicates industry input back to PCC to support the College’s responsiveness to industry.
- Proactively engages with manufacturing leaders to promote OMIC Training, including recruitment and support for an OMIC-aligned Joint Apprenticeship & Training Committee (JATC), sponsorship of apprentices, curriculum development, equipment selection, worksite tours, and potential donations.
- Serves as a liaison to regional manufacturers to promote work-based learning programs such as registered apprenticeships, youth apprenticeships, pre-apprenticeships and other similar models.
- Works collaboratively with other regional educational, economic and workforce development agencies supporting the manufacturing sector such as school districts, universities, chambers of commerce, workforce boards, and economic development agencies to align industry engagement, articulate seamless pathways for manufacturing careers, and promote OMIC Training.
