"This is the sixthcohort of GO FAME and our students continue to lead the state. Our business and industry partnerships are a model for the rest of the state" commented Dr. Scott Williams, OCTC President.

The Greater Owensboro Chapter of KY FAME (Kentucky Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education) GO FAME model utilizes a "work and learn" model that allows participating students to earn an industry recognized, multi-craft technician degree over five semesters, in about eighteen months.

Interested GO FAME applicants must be high school graduates (or equivalent) and be willing to participate in the program's 40 hour per week, apprenticeship-style format. Students attend college two days per week while working three days per week at their sponsoring company.

Upon completion of the program, students receive an associate in applied science degree in Advanced Manufacturing Technology (AMT) and practical skills gained during their paid work experience.
