OKLAHOMA CITY — The Polymer Injection Molding Program at Francis Tuttle Vo-Tech Center recently received accreditation from the Oklahoma Department of Vocational and Technical Education, allowing students to get high school credit and financial aid.
The Oklahoma City program, which trains students for jobs in the plastics industry, has an enrollment of 12.
Training is based on four levels of competency: pre-operator, material handler, die setter and process technician. The teaching facility runs real-time production, using molds and materials supplied by partner companies.
``We have an outstanding relationship with our business and industry partners,'' said Tom King, who heads the program. ``In fact, many times we'll actually do production for them.''
