The IMT succeeds in helping employers and unions prepare workers for a career in advanced manufacturing.

Find out how IMT works and benefits:

Employers participate by identifying skill requirements for your company, hiring new workers or selecting current workers as apprentices, and providing mentors to deliver on-the-job learning.
Workforce development agencies can work with intermediaries, employers and unions to place workers in apprenticeship positions that provide on-the-job-learning and formal education in basic and specialized manufacturing skills.
Apprentices gain on-the-job-learning in the critical manufacturing work processes and related tasks and participate in formal education and assessments, preparing them for career advancement opportunities in the manufacturing industry.
Unions work with employers to build a systematic approach to address the education and training needs of entry-level and frontline manufacturing workers and union members.
