Manufacturing on the Move

We are working to support the needs of our regional business community.

We are partnering with our regional businesses and organizations to provide needed training and commercial services both on and off campus.  Local companies work with our faculty members and students to conduct experimental research on campus. 

In the coming months, Engineering Technologies is taking manufacturing on the move with their new mobile education lab made possible by a grant through the Ohio Department of Higher Education's RAPIDS program.

Shawnee State will use this lab in partnership with the University of Rio Grande and Community College, Southern State Community College, Ohio University (Southern and Chillicothe campuses) and the Career Technical Centers of Scioto County, Pickaway-Ross, and Buckeye Hills.  The lab will be used across the region to promote the manufacturing industry and careers in southeast Ohio, and also to provide training to students and workers in the area -- including training on the latest 3D technology.

Watch our website and social media for more information about "Manufacturing on the Move."

HAZWOPER Training Resource

Mobile Lab

The Environmental Health and Safety Mobile Training Unit is a portable multi-function hazardous material training facility which will be utilized across the region for both college credit and non-credit training programs.  The trailer will be used for Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response Standard (HAZWOPER) training in accordance with OSHA standards.

This trailer was purchased with funds awarded by the Regionally Aligned Priorities in Delivering Skills (RAPIDS) grant.  Ohio University's Southern Campus is collaborating with grant partners Shawnee State University, the University of Rio Grande and Rio Grande Community College, Southern State Community College and the Ohio Higher Education Commission to provide workforce training to the region.

For more information, see the Fact Sheet for the Environmental Health and Safety Mobile Training Unit.

What training and commercial needs does your business have?

Shawnee State University might be able to help by providing non-credit training at your site, on Shawnee State's campus or eventually in our new Innovation Accelerator when it opens on Chillicothe Street later this year.  Let us also know about any commercial service needs (i.e. research, testing) your business might have.  We're here to help make our regional business community partners successful.  Contact our Workforce Development office at (740) 351-3322, or email our Workforce Development Coordinator, Angie Duduit, at
