NAMC works to develop the regional workforce pipeline that will provide the skilled employees necessary for advanced manufacturing to remain globally competitive, long into the future. To this end, the consortium leverages a wealth of local, state, and federal resources, which include:
NAMC partners with companies to provide up to $4,800 per apprentice to train new hires or existing workers into registered apprenticeship training programs.
NAMC continuously runs training programs with our community college and career & technical high school partners in manufacturing, which includes, Machining, Electromechanical Assembly, and Welding. Quality Control and Robotics are offered when our training program partners are able to provide the instruction. The manufacturing curriculum has been vetted by an advisory board of Northeast manufacturers to ensure that the skills learned are applicable to today’s workplace. If you would like to access any one of our training programs, please contact us immediately so we can coordinate your needs with the local MA Hire Career Center and our Educational partners.
To learn more about these resources, please contact Maryanne Ham, Executive Director of NAMC.
