Sunday, April 02, 2017
The Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS) and Chippewa Valley Technical College (CVTC) recently honored Phillips-Medisize Corporation for its commitment to technical college education. The WTCS Futuremaker Partner award recognizes the unique and dynamic partnerships between Wisconsin’s technical colleges and their employer partners.
Phillips-Medisize was the first company to utilize CVTC’s new 17-credit Manufacturing Quality Technical Diploma program, making it a mandatory credential for advancement in the company’s Quality Division. The company currently has 24 students enrolled in the program, fully funding each employee’s tuition, fees, materials, and providing regular company pay for class time. CVTC offers the program, with credits that build directly into CVTC’s Engineering Technologist Associate Degree, at its Menomonie campus to accommodate Phillips-Medisize.
