SC's Competitive EDGE: Advanced Manufacturing

Denmark Tech brings advanced manufacturing to you


Denmark Technical College (DTC) brings advanced manufacturing training directly to local manufacturers through its Mobile Training Unit (MTU). The MTU is outfitted with technical training equipment, electrical and pneumatic power as well as Wi-Fi. Programs that are currently being offered on plant sites include: Industrial Maintenance (Electrical-Mechanical), Certified Production Technician, Certified Logistics Technician, Process Technician and STEM Awareness.

Horsehead Corporation in Barnwell, SC makes the most of the MTU by using it to train its employees in an Industrial Maintenance apprenticeship. Eric Stroom, Horsehead’s plant manager, explains the advantages of the MTU: “We have been partnering with Denmark Tech for six years, and it has been a good experience with proven performance results. The flexible on-site training is a convenient and efficient way for us to educate our workforce.”

The MTU allows DTC to transfer equipment from the mobile unit to the company training room so employees can be trained on-site. Employees can further their education by obtaining both their
Department of Labor Apprenticeship credential and any one of DTC’s Institute of Advanced Manufacturing certificates without ever leaving the plant.
