WMIA is extremely excited by the National Woods Manufacturing Training Center, scheduled to open August 2017 in Colorado Springs, CO. The new training center is an expansion of the Peyton Woods Manufacturing program established in 2015. WMIA Members supported this effort through loaning industrial woodworking machinery to the school for use in the woodworking manufacturing classes.
The National Training Center has scheduled an open house Feb 8 (6pm-7:30pm.) to tour the facility. Those interested in learning more, please visit the registration website.
WMIA applauds the work of Dean Mattson (Program Director), and Tim Kistler (superintendent of Peyton School District), whose work on this project will assuredly pay dividends to the woodworking industry for years to come through its offering of first-rate training in woodworking skills.
