MCC and 20 other community colleges created a consortium called
Illinois Network for Advanced Manufacturing (iNAM). The goal of the iNAM project is to expand and improve the delivery of education and career training programs leading to industry-recognized certificates or associate degrees that can be completed in two years or less, and prepare Trade Adjustment Assistance Act Reauthorization Act of 2015 (TAARA 2015)-eligible and other workers for employment in high-wage, high-skill advanced manufacturing occupations.
Manufacturing accounts for approximately one quarter of McHenry County’s economy and MCC is committed to supporting manufacturing because area manufacturers require a local, skilled workforce.
