Industry Support

The Emerson Center for Engineering and Manufacturing is committed to developing a skilled workforce for the St. Louis region and providing technical support to the region’s manufacturing industry. The Emerson Center, located on the Florissant Valley campus of St. Louis Community College, provides degree and certificate programs and customized training programs to the local manufacturing and engineering workforce. Our help can be simple or extensive:

  • Assisting a company employee with finding the right class and guidance through admissions and registration;
  • Arranging a special section of a course at days and times that work for your employee  group;
  • Arranging special training geared to just the information your current or potential employees need.

We can bring together the resources of the Engineering & Technology department at the Florissant Valley campus of St. Louis Community College and the Workforce Solutions Group at the Corporate College location in Bridgeton to serve the needs of the St. Louis region.

  • Boeing: Since 2007 and continuing now, we provide an accelerated training program to create a pool of potential assembly mechanics for Boeing. Depending on Boeing’s needs, we have delivered a 5 week program focused on sheet metal assembly and riveting or a 10-week program that also includes training for electrical and mechanical assembly. We are also providing training for aerospace composite fabrication and assembly to meet Boeing’s hiring needs. We have offered a day class format and an evening class format. Individuals who complete the program receive a job interview from Boeing. More information about the Boeing Pre-employment program can be found here or call 314-539-5921 for recorded information.
  • Ameren: Ameren Missouri has chosen the Emerson Center to develop a pool of qualified candidates for their line worker apprentice position. When Ameren anticipates a need to fill a new apprentice class, we partner with the America’s Job Centers to collect and screen resumes from interested applicants. After testing and interviews, participants are selected for our training class that exposes them to pole climbing skills and reviews basic math, technical reading and mechanical concepts. Participants take Ameren’s screening test upon completion of our class and if successful may continue in Ameren’s screening process. Recorded information is available at 314-539-5988.
  • AT&T: For over 18 years, we have delivered a highly customized 15-month program for AT&T to prepare office and clerical workers to transfer into higher paying, in demand technical positions within the company. Employees earned a Certificate of Proficiency in Telecommunications Engineering Technology
  • Aviation: The Emerson Center for Engineering and Manufacturing coordinates the delivery of college credit courses for an innovative airframe & power plant (A&P) mechanic program. This FAA certified program is offered at Gateway STEM High School under a cooperative effort by the Engineering & Technology Department, the STLCC Workforce Solutions Group and the St. Louis Public Schools (SLPS). More information on the Aviation Maintenance Certificates of Proficiency can be found here. More information about this partnership with SLPS can be found here.
