Why IMT

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.
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.
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.
