GO FAME is the Greater Owensboro Chapter of KY FAME (Kentucky Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education), an alliance of local manufacturers partnering with the Owensboro Community and Technical College in an apprenticeship-style training program designed to develop a highly skilled workforce.
The continuous accelerated program allows participating students to earn an industry recognized, multi-craft technician degree while gaining valuable experience working in a manufacturing environment.
The program provides students an education while incurring little or no debt. The sponsoring company will pay a minimum of 50% of the student’s tuition costs and an hourly wage for time on the job.
The following programs are currently being offered with degree completion in 18 months.
AMT: Advanced Manufacturing Technician, Associate in Applied Science Degree
CMM: Computerized Manufacturing & Machining, Associate in Applied Science Degree
Participating employers, like OMICO Plastics, put work-based courses in action for the students who are learning the curriculum.
