Key Partners: Cuyahoga Community College’s Unified Technology Center; Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committees/Centers in a variety of skilled trades (e.g. construction, advanced manufacturing and engineering, electrical); Ford; General Motors; Alcoa; Kent State University; University of Akron III. Agreement Development and Summary: The Unified Technology Center at Cuyahoga Community College (“Tri-C”) was founded in the early 1990’s and houses the Workforce and Economic Development Division of the college. Historically, the Unified Technology Center has delivered industry-driven training for individuals, labor unions, and employers/companies in a variety of sectors, such as construction, advanced manufacturing, and healthcare, including related technical instruction for Registered Apprenticeship programs in these fields. In approximately 2004, the Unified Technology Center initiated an effort to enhance its partnership with the academic division of Tri-C in order to develop programs that would enable trainees to earn college credit while simultaneously participating in training in the skilled trades (in Registered Apprenticeship programs as well as other training programs).
