VANCOUVER – An event will introduce manufacturers to a program that can rapidly train technicians in the ways of mechatronics on Wednesday.

Mechatronics, according to employment organization Workforce Southwest Washington, are machines controlled by computer or electronic systems that are used in manufacturing, technology and other sectors.

The Rural Access Mechatronics Program will launch in the fall, aiming to train workers on how to use these technologies in “as little as six months.” The program is run by Clark College.

Manufacturers are invited to take a look at the program during an 8 a.m. breakfast meeting, Wednesday at the Columbia Tech Center, 18700 S.E. Mill Plain Blvd.
