Continue reading below

Massachusetts Bay Community College has received a state “rapid response’’ grant, which will support workforce training programs and certificates benefiting local company employees within three months of a company’s funding request, officials announced last week. The state is doling out a cumulative $500,000 in the rapid response grants to 10 community colleges. MassBay, which has campuses on Flagg Drive in Framingham and in Wellesley Hills, and an auto technology center in Ashland, received $75,000 in state funding, along with a $15,000 match from Holliston’s Web Industries Inc., where the college is hosting workshops in team building, basic math, technology, computers, statistics, and English as a second language. At Web Industries, an advanced manufacturing facility providing equipment to some of the world’s leading medical diagnostics companies, 14 employees have signed up for the first phase of classroom training delivered by MassBay educators, who developed a curriculum in partnership with the company. Employees will be paid for their participation, and encouraged to pursue additional courses toward degrees in computer basics, math, team-building, computer software applications, and statistical process control.
