Bay Area Colleges Address Quality-Control NeedsFebruary 10, 2017 |
by Amber Nelson
California’s manufacturers contribute more than ten percent to the state’s economy and it’s the job of quality control staff to ensure products meet appropriate standards. In the Bay Area alone, there are 12,000 quality control inspectors and an ongoing demand for 400 new inspectors every year. This fall, two new classes and a new certificate program developed by a regional collaboration between community colleges and industry will be introduced to prepare workers to take on the challenges of quality inspection.
