Adaptation is key to an evolving business environment. Employees must creatively balance work-life responsibilities of family, transportation, and personal time to further their education. The IMT program supports employer’s needs by helping them to grow talent internally while motivating employees with a flexible program that builds a career in advanced manufacturing.
Traditional apprentice programs, while highly regarded, often experience low participation because the required courses are only offered in the evening inside a physical classroom at a local college or vocational school. Developed with manufacturers to meet manufacturing companies’ needs to upgrade the skills of workers, IMT modernizing the old model of apprenticeships in a way that meets the needs of today’s workforce.
IMT helps Florida manufacturers bridge skills gaps by creating a pipeline of skilled workers, increases retention, productivity and ROI.
Many grant resources exist to offset these costs. For more information, contact the FloridaMakes Apprenticeship Coordinator at Talent.Development@floridamakes.com
The IMT program’s curriculum can be aligned with and customized to a particular company’s specific policies and on the job training. Upon completion of training, workers earn nationally recognized manufacturing journey worker credentials.
It’s estimated that by 2028, U.S. manufacturers will need to fill 4.8 million jobs, however one hurdle stands in the way of this: the industry skills gap. To combat this problem, FloridaMakes created and sponsors the Industrial Manufacturing Technician (IMT) Apprenticeship program.learn more
