Classroom, lab space added; RESA anticipated to lease space following renovation
Recall that Yavapai College has partnered with the Resa Corporation and the City of Prescott to train RESA employees. (See Blog posting dated January 25, 2018.) RESA is a small company located in Prescott. It has been around for about twenty years and is known for providing orthopedic insoles. RESA and the City of Prescott approached the College in December 2018 indicating a need to quickly train future employees. The College agreed to partner with the City and RESA.
The College has moved at lighting speed on this project. It created a 14 week 19 credit training program in about a month. Training begins shortly. It has taken less than a month to renovate 4,000 square feet at the Career and Technical Education Center at the Prescott airport that will act as an employee training center. The space at CTEC was re-purposed to become classroom and lab space.
The training at CTEC is related to the fabrication of insoles created through scanning and 3-D printing. Students enrolled at the College attend a variety of technology related courses and work as paid interns. If they are successful, they are promised full time employment by RESA.
