MALTA — HVCC will create a targeted electronics technician apprenticeship program for GlobalFoundries employees.

Hudson Valley Community College said its Office of Workforce Development will use a $144,000 grant from the American Association of Community Colleges to develop a curriculum that can be delivered to employees right at the computer chip factory in Malta, and nearby at HVCC’s TEC-SMART extension center.

It will be a microcredential program, which teaches specific skills competencies within an area of study at a faster or more flexible rate than a degree or certificate program.

HVCC said it has collaborated with GlobalFoundries in the past, and its semiconductor manufacturing and electronics degree and certificate programs are aimed at those looking to start a career in the industry. For nine years, the two have partnered on workforce and educational development needs; the company has hired over 150 employees from the college’s industrial technology programs.
