The Hawaiʻi Community College Office of Continuing Education and Training is offering a non-credit Process Technology and General Maintenance program at the Hawaiʻi CC Hilo campus. The program runs from August 30 to December 22 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, 5:30–7:45 p.m.

Hawaiʻi CC has partnered with local industry and commercial entities to develop this 17-week/112-hour program that will provide the required training and hands-on experience for entry-level positions in process technology departments and building maintenance. Wages for these types of positions vary and depend on experience, but they can be in the range of $15 to $18 per hour.

Process technology is at the heart of any industry involved in the production of consumer goods from raw material as well as the treatment and handling of materials and wastes within the utilities, manufacturing and commercial building sectors. The duties of a process technician vary widely, but generally, the primary duty of any process technician is to optimize a specialized process and keep it on track, even if problems arise.

Enrollment information

Interviews and pre-registration will be held Wednesdays, July 27, and August 3, 10 and 17 from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. in Hilo at the Hawaiʻi CC campus. Enrollment is limited to 12 students.

The tuition is $1,595 with a $1,000 tuition reimbursement sponsored by Puna Geothermal Venture. The reimbursement will be paid upon successful completion of the program.
