The IMT succeeds in helping employers and unions prepare workers for a career in advanced manufacturing.
Notes / Takeaways
The AFL-CIO Working for America Institute (WAI), in partnership with the Wisconsin Regional Training Partnership/ BIG STEP and Jobs for the Future developed the Industrial Manufacturing Technician (IMT) Apprenticeship with grant funds from a U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration. A second Labor Dept. grant through the American Apprenticeship Initiative supports the expansion of the IMT apprenticeship to employers and unions in eight states.
The IMT hybrid registered apprenticeship provides production workers with the knowledge and competencies needed in the advanced manufacturing environment.
