Following years of planning and construction, Portland Community College’s (PCC) Oregon Manufacturing Innovation Training Center in Scappoose opens for classes this summer and credit offerings are planned to start this fall.

PCC Center Scappoose

At 32,245 square feet, the state-of-the-art manufacturing and training facility is the college’s first permanent physical location in Columbia County and the first building at the college’s newly established Columbia County Center.

The training center is the educational arm of the nearby Oregon Manufacturing Innovation Center (OMIC) initiative — a collaboration of industry, higher education and government that combines applied research and development and workforce training.

PCC's facility is traditionally known as the OMIC Training Center and is located at the college’s Columbia County Center, 34001 NE Wagner Ct. in Scappoose. The center officially opens on Monday, Aug. 16 with a free, five-week series of “On-Ramp to Manufacturing” classes that are designed for people interested in working in advanced manufacturing, according to a release from PCC.
