SIGNAL PEAK — Although many programs at Central Arizona College switched to virtual for the fall semester, the school has continued on-site learning for various skilled training programs that demand hands-on or laboratory coursework.
With several local companies like Lucid and Nikola hoping to manufacture vehicles, CAC has plans to expand their automated industrial technology program. But representatives for the school were not yet sure how the pandemic will impact winter recruitment.
Sandra Zires, director of i-RAMM Earn & Learn Training at the college, said that there are currently four CAC students who were employed with Lucid in Casa Grande, and that there were processes in place for the company to hire a second and third wave of students once they begin manufacturing cars.
