The session will be held 5 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 20 in the Advanced Technology Center in ATC 107, on OCTC's Main Campus at 4800 New Hartford Road.

"This is the fourth cohort of GO FAME and our students continue to lead the state. Our business and industry partnerships are a model for the rest of the state" commented Dr. Scott Williams, OCTC President.

The Greater Owensboro Chapter of KY FAME-Kentucky Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education) GO FAME model utilizes a "work and learn" model that allows participating students to earn an industry recognized, multi-craft technician degree over five semesters, in about eighteen months.

Interested GO FAME applicants must be high school graduates (or equivalent) and be willing to participate in the program's 40 hour per week, apprenticeship-style format. Students attend college two days per week while working three days per week at their sponsoring company.

Frank Anderson, president of the GO FAME chapter added, "These students can enhance the way you do business. The program has changed the way I personally, think about millennials, the creativity and innovation they bring will spur others in your organization to also bring new ideas forward. It is really a life changing experience for the students, you can see them grow each week by having the opportunity to apply what they learn in the classroom in a real-world environment".

Upon completion of the program, students receive an associate in applied science degree in Advanced Manufacturing Technology or Computerized Manufacturing and Machining and practical skills gained during their paid work experience.
