State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) presented a commendation to celebrate the ribbon cutting and open house of the Robotics & Advanced Manufacturing Technology Education Collaborative (RAMTEC) at Cuyahoga Valley Career Center (CVCC).
Attendees of the ribbon cutting ceremony and open house made an entrance through the RAMTEC Mobile Training Unit, a 26 foot, fully equipped trailer with climate control that the school will use to take its training programs on the road.
Funded primarily by a $1.5 million Straight A grant from the state of Ohio, the RAMTEC Center includes a renovated 3500 square foot machining lab with a new 3200 square foot addition. The new facility will assist CVCC in addressing the advanced manufacturing and engineering skills gap by preparing high school and adult students for careers in these fields. The majority of the grant went towards new and upgraded equipment in the areas of welding, pneumatic and hydraulic training, and multicolored programmable logic controllers (PLCs). All of these are part of building a world class metal fabrication and state of the art Computer Numeric Control (CNC) training center.
“The experience and training that students will receive from this state of the art facility is astounding.  It is vital that our state continues to advocate for technical and career-focused programs to better equip our children for the workforce,” Rep. Anielski said. “It is an honor to have the program in my district and I look forward to continued success from the Cuyahoga Valley Career Center.”

Celena Roebuck, CVCC Superintendent, said, "As part of a statewide initiative focused on advanced manufacturing, we can expand our influence and economic impact beyond the immediate CVCC area. It is exciting to see the resurgence of manufacturing in Northeast Ohio and to know that CVCC continues to play an integral role in that process."
