The requested details regarding 20 active educational programs in Midland, Michigan, that help provide a pathway for people looking to get into manufacturing jobs in the region have been provided in rows 2-21, columns A, B, and D-F of the attached spreadsheet. In absence of sufficient educational programs restricted to the city of Midland, the scope of the research has been expanded to cities in Michigan within a 150-200 mile radius of Midland.

For providing the requested details regarding 20 active educational programs in Midland, Michigan, that help provide a pathway for people looking to get into manufacturing jobs in the region, we have leveraged the websites of the institutes/organizations offering the programs/courses. In absence of sufficient educational programs restricted to the city of Midland, the scope of the research has been expanded to cities in Michigan within a 150-200 mile radius of Midland. These include institutes/organizations located in Harrison, Mt. Pleasant, Saginaw, Bay City (located about 19 miles from Midland), Plymouth (located about 117 miles from Midland), Kalamazoo (located about 160 miles from Midland), Benton Harbor (located about 189 miles from Midland), and Traverse City (located about 127 miles from Midland). All these institutes/organizations cater to people in Midland looking for manufacturing jobs in the region. While we have mostly focused our research on finding educational programs/courses centered on manufacturing engineering, technology, and management, specific programs on welding, machine tools, mechatronics, and automation/robotics have also been considered since these subjects fall under the aegis of manufacturing engineering and technology.
It should also be noted that in the absence of a specific drop down option for training programs and educational classes that do not belong to any of the categories listed in column E of the spreadsheet, we have considered such programs/classes under 'earn and learn' programs.
