Three Rivers Community College is pleased to announce the appointment of Todd Parcinski as the new Program Coordinator at the Three Rivers Community College Manufacturing Apprenticeship Center (TRCC MAC). The TRCC MAC offers manufacturing training programs for adults and high school student, along with the Manufacturing Pipeline programs, in our state-of-the-art facility in Groton.
Parcinski will be the program administrator and public face of the TRCC MAC, tasked with keeping it in the forefront of addressing the massive need for skilled trade workers and understanding local and national manufacturing trends. He will work closely with Eastern Connecticut Workforce Investment Board (EWIB), Eastern Advance Manufacturing Alliance (EAMA), and Electric Boat to update current courses and develop new ones to serve their workforce needs. As the administrator for manufacturing workforce training, he will also oversee course development and program evaluation, and keep the community informed about the TRCC MAC.
Explaining his interest in the position, Parcinski said, “I was inspired to work for TRCC by my friend and colleague Mark Vesligaj. I am excited to be working here and will continue his legacy and what he and the team have built.”
“We are so grateful to have Todd on board and are excited by his big picture ideas that will guide our manufacturing program now and into the future,” said Acting Director of Non-Credit Programs Erin Sullivan.
Parcinski most recently worked at Pratt & Whitney as a Military Validation Assembly Engineer for their F119 and F135 engine programs in Middletown where he oversaw the teardown, rebuild, and instrumentation of development engines. Before Pratt & Whitney, he worked at BRG Radiator as a Design Engineer of cooling systems for diesel, natural gas-, and gas-powered engines that are used for onsite back-up power generation. He lives in Danielson, Connecticut with his wife Jen and their cat and dachshund.
