Electric Boat and Community College of Rhode Island will hold an open house on June 28 and 29 for anyone interested in teaching maritime trades. Representatives from the partners will be available to answer questions about teaching, compensation, application procedures, and to give tours.
The sessions will be held from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on June 28 and 10:00 a.m. to noon on June 29. Both will be held at Westerly Education Center, 23 Friendship Street in Westerly, the site of the coursework.
“This is a no-commitment opportunity for anyone who has ever worked at Electric Boat or within their supplier network to see the classrooms and hands-on training area and explore the possibility of teaching skills in submarine construction to a new generation of Electric Boat employees,” said Amy Grzybowski, executive director, Westerly Education Center. “We know that many people who worked at Electric Boat worked there for decades and have tremendous institutional knowledge about the company, their practices, and their manufacturing expectations. I strongly encourage all to visit Westerly Education Center and meeting the recruiters.”
“Since 2017, CCRI, Electric Boat and Westerly Education Center have conducted workforce trainings for 1,500 new Electric Boat employees for the most in-demand jobs in advanced manufacturing,” said Jaime Nash, executive director of the division of workforce partnerships, CCRI. “The college supports the instructors with training and orientation, and we remain close in touch with them to make their teaching experience optimal. The curriculum and teaching materials have been in place for five years and are very easy for people who have never taught to provide a rich training experience to learners.”
