Workforce Development & Education

Finding, training and retaining skilled workers is one of the top issues facing manufacturers across the country. FloridaMakes collaborates with local, state and national public and private resources to deliver specialized training, worker certification, hands-on experience, management training and other advanced manufacturing education programs needed for today’s high-skilled jobs.
