The Alabama Technology Network (ATN) of the Alabama Community College System links two-year colleges, the University of Alabama System, Auburn University and the Economic Development Partnership of Alabama together to solve the needs of the State’s existing manufacturing industry. This link allows Alabama manufacturers to “make things better in their business.” As Alabama’s Affiliate of the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Manufacturing Extension Partnership, our employees are able to provide training and services that meet local needs and provide innovative and cost-effective solutions. Through ATN’s resources, we put our clients in touch with our experts to provide solutions to their business needs.
The College, through the local Alabama Technology Network Center, offers various types of seminars, workshops, and courses for employees of area businesses and industries on a cost-share basis. Recognizing that economic development and continued economic stability are essential to the community it serves, the College extends its facilities and other resources to businesses and industries by providing training in such areas as Lean Manufacturing, Six Sigma, Environmental Safety, and Health, Maintenance, Executive Coaching, and various other process improvement and continuing education opportunities.
