You are invited to join LIFT for a Skilled Trades Open House on Tuesday, November 30 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at LIFT’s Detroit headquarters at 1400 Rosa Parks Blvd.

At the Open House, you’ll meet the LIFT Talent Team, tour the facility and learn more about how you can enroll in any of our four skilled trades courses to earn an advanced manufacturing certification – at no cost!

LIFT’s Welding Technician program prepares students to become entry-level welders in either Gas Metal Arc Welding (MIG) or Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (TIG). Utilizing curriculum aligned to the American Welding Society SENSE Level I standards, this course covers the required knowledge, attitude, skills, and habits required to perform routine, predictable, repetitive, and procedural welding tasks. Topics include: Safety, Occupational Orientation, Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) or Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW), four Thermal Cutting Processes, and Welding Inspection and Testing.

LIFT’s CNC Operations program prepares students to operate CNC mills and lathes. Utilizing curriculum aligned to NIMS Machining standards, this course covers: Machine maintenance, safety, print reading, measurements, inspection, cutting tool assembly, geometrical dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T), and hands-on project-based learning done in the Learning Lab.

The Robotics Certification program begins with a focus on robotics programming which will result in two SACA credentials. If the students decide to continue through the program at LIFT, they can earn the additional credentials required to become a qualified robotics technician. Here, the students will learn to build, maintain, operate, and test robotic equipment. To help assist engineers, the course also teaches aspects of the design, production, and development of the equipment.

Industrial Maintenance Technicians install, repair, and maintain commercial or industrial machinery in buildings, a plant, or a manufacturing setting, ensuring all machines function properly through troubleshooting and preventive maintenance service.
