The complete program is offered at two of HACC’s campuses, the Midtown site in Harrisburg and the Gettysburg Campus. Adams/Hanover area students have the option of studying close to home with classes in industrial electricity offered at R.H. Sheppard and classes in welding at Southwestern High School and other
required courses at the Gettysburg Campus.
A majority of the coursework for the program also can be completed at the Lebanon Campus including courses in electricity, blueprint reading, Introduction to Geospatial Technology, HVAC and Welding.
The program is especially useful for students who have a need for a general technology background. Many jobs cut across several specialty areas, and no onetraditional program fits all needs.
“This customized program in technology studies will help us meet the demand for technically skilled workers who are critical to industry moving in the Adams/Hanover area,” said Thomas Lepp, instructor in Mechatronics/Trades at the Gettysburg Campus. “We’ve worked with industry leaders to develop the Adams/Hanover programs.”
Kay Litman, campus director for enrollment at the Lebanon Campus, said, “The flexibility of this program allows the student to tailor a training program which suits his or her occupational goals. Diverse, technically skilled workers are vital to the manufacturing community in Lebanon County.”
