Industry 4.0 – Advanced Manufacturing box truck will provide mobile training opportunities throughout the District

Northwood Tech’s new mobile welding lab has arrived at the Rice Lake campus. The 53-foot mobile welding lab has eight individual welding booths, where students can practice hands-on skills and employers can have employees trained to upskill their abilities. The lab is part of the College’s expanding options for Industry 4.0 Advanced Manufacturing training. Since the lab is mobile, power will either be supplied by a generator or a shore power at the training site.

Northwood Tech would like to introduce the 2023 Student Ambassadors: Spencer Taves, Ashland; Jamie Scott, New Richmond; Jasper McCracken, Rice Lake; Jonathan Palay, Superior. 

Northwood Technical College was recently announced as part of the official list of schools across the nation that have earned the 2023-2024 Military Friendly® Schools award level designation.

Northwood Tech President John Will represented the College at a White House event highlighting commitments made under the Biden administration’s Talent Pipeline Challenge, a call to action for employers, education and training providers and others to support equitable workforce development in critical infrastructure sectors like broadband. In a new partnership, Northwood Technical College will provide NTCA member companies across the country online access to its Broadband Academy courses and library and a “Digital Badging” program in which students may enroll on an individual course-by-course basis or complete the full program. NTCA and Northwood Tech also plan to create a common template for apprenticeship-like training, modeled after the Northwood Tech apprenticeship program.

Northwood Technical College hosted a roundtable event Thursday, September 15 at the College’s New Richmond campus conference center with stakeholders to discuss grant details and planning to utilize the $9.8 million Housing Opportunity and Mobile Education Solutions (HOMES) Workforce Innovation Grant.
