About the FloridaMakes’ IMT Program
The Industrial Manufacturing Technician (IMT) Apprenticeship Program is a competency-based hybrid statewide program offered to focus on advancing entry-level skills for new and existing employees in IMT occupations. Program requirements include 200 non-working hours of online curriculum and 2,000-hours of on-the-job training. It utilizes training from the Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC) through online courses, delivered on Amatrol’s eLearning platform. Courses are interactive and feature state-of-the-art e-learning simulation and technologies and the curriculum is nationally recognized as an industry standard for entry level training.
The IMT Program was designed through a sector strategy approach led by the FloridaMakes Advanced Manufacturing Workforce Leadership Council (AMWLC) and the collaboration amongst manufacturers, CareerSource Florida, the Florida Department of Education’s Division of Career and Adult Education, and MSSC.
