The Center for Electronics Manufacturing and Assembly provides unemployed and underemployed U.S. military veterans and displaced workers hands-on training.

In partnership with RIT, Rochester Works!, and the Veterans Outreach Center, CEMA provides hands-on training in through hole and surface mount electronics assembly, soldering, and acceptability criteria of electronic assemblies. These free training programs establish the baseline knowledge required of any entry level, supervisory or managerial level position. No prior electronic assembly knowledge is necessary for enrollment. Upon completion of these programs, participants will have earned the respective certifications. These certificates are universally accepted and are considered essential for any job that requires handling, soldering, and quality inspection of electronic assemblies.
