Area businesses can request customized training programs that equip their employees with specific skills to move their business forward or to stay up-to-date on certifications and new or emerging industry practices. We offer a variety of trainings in areas that include safety, manufacturing, and health care.
Area businesses can work cooperatively with Mid Michigan College to become intern or apprentice placement sites, adding talented Mid students to their staff. Not only do our students benefit from the rich experiential learning that happens on the job, but employers benefit from gaining an extra set of hands and the ability to shape their future talent pools.
Area businesses seeking business planning and expansion assistance, marketing solutions, etc, can receive assistance through the Small Business Development Center (SBDC). Mid is proud to be the mid-Michigan area site location for a regional branch of the SBDC, which is located at our Morey Technical Center in Mt. Pleasant.
Mid Michigan College students participate in internships and co-op placements, some of which are necessary to complete their programs of study. Students requiring placement in these experiential learning programs should contact our department.
