Furniture Academy


The Furniture Manufacturers of Cleveland County (FMCC) have joined together to create a course of study for students who are interested in learning the skills needed to work in a modern furniture manufacturing facility. The Academy will offer a mixture of classroom time and hands-on learning at a furniture manufacturing facility. The course is designed to cover the three major areas of furniture manufacturing: cutting and sewing, inside upholstery, and outside upholstery.


$180 paid at registration.
Financial Assistance may be available to cover the cost of this class. Application and approval are required. Financial Assistance available to veterans.
