Compsys Inc. Fosters Growth for Employees

Through EDC's CPT Program

 

Space Coast, FL (July 25, 2019) – Compsys Inc., a local manufacturer specializing in the production of PRISMA composite preforms has now successfully sent nearly 15% of its employee base through the Economic Development Commission of Florida’s Space Coast’s (EDC) Certified Production Technician (CPT) course.

The CPT course, a 10-week program through Eastern Florida State College, provides skills-based training for Brevard County citizens as a pathway to entry-level manufacturing jobs, or a catalyst for advancing current manufacturing careers. Compsys identified the program through the EDC as a resource for its employees to further their careers in manufacturing, while providing the company additional skills and knowledge to further its success.

“CPT has furthered my education in manufacturing and led me to become more productive while at work,” declared Bill Holtz, Materials Manager at Compsys Inc.

“Congratulations to our Certified Production Technician Certificate recipients. We appreciate all of the opportunities the EDC offers our organizations as well as our local workforce,” stated Crystal Jacoby, VP of Operations for Compsys Inc.

“With an 80% job placement rate after completion, the EDC’s CPT course continues to be a vital resource for Brevard’s manufacturing sector-fueling the next generation of its workforce” noted Lynda Weatherman, President and CEO of the EDC. “Congratulations to Compsys/Structural Composites and their nine employees who have completed the CPT course – this is a true example of the importance of this program.”
