More than 120 local employees will have access to Missoula College classes and degree pathways in a new partnership between a Missoula manufacturing firm and the two-year college, embedded within the University of Montana.

Missoula College has recently partnered with Elite One Source, a Missoula-headquartered manufacturing firm of dietary supplements and custom products. The workforce education partnership between the college and Elite One Source will provide a new certificate program – ­Manufacturing Certificate of Technical Skills – to Elite employees, providing a path to earn a general associate of science degree or to eventually complete a bachelor’s degree through UM.

This partnership will provide flexible, credit-based workforce education for employees with an emphasis on building professional and workplace skills. Employees that work for Elite One Source can pursue coursework in manufacturing processes, technical skills, communication, career readiness, human relations and workplace safety.

The new certificate also is open to all employees in the manufacturing industry.
