The IMT Program was registered through a collaborative sector strategy approach led by the FloridaMakes Advanced Manufacturing Workforce Leadership Council (AMWLC), industry representatives, CareerSource Florida, the Florida Department of Education’s Division of Career and Adult Education, and the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council (MSSC).
The Industrial Manufacturing Technician Apprenticeship Program assists employers that are struggling to attract and retain talent with the tools necessary to provide entry-level workers with training to quickly enhance their skills and attain industry relevant post secondary credentials.
Many manufacturers report facing skills shortages. IMT’s courses help employers create a pipeline of internal skilled workers; customize skills training, and increase retention, productivity, and ROI.
Customized training that results in highly skilled employees trained to industry/employer specifications. Increased productivity and knowledge transfer through on-the-job learning that reinforces the related technical instruction.

Apprentices earn the Industrial Manufacturing Technician certificate from the Florida Department of Education and 15 college credits towards the Engineering Technology Associate in Science degree program upon successful attainment of the Certified Production Technician certification (CPT) from the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council (MSSC).
Tuition is paid by the employer and the apprentice receives wage increases at key points as they work with their mentor and improve skills. Training funds may be available through workforce partners.
Online and on-demand courses eliminate travel while providing on-the-job training at their place of employment.
