Tooling U-SME’s pre-apprenticeship focused Accelerated Advanced Manufacturing Program allows you to educate students and workforce trainees in the basic, foundational skills for advanced manufacturing and enables them to choose a specialized career pathway. We partner with the American Job Center Network, community colleges and workforce development agencies nationwide to deliver online curriculum in the advanced manufacturing sector that:

  • Builds a pipeline of skilled workers
  • Aligns with nationally recognized industry credentials
  • Provides opportunities for dislocated workers
  • Educates and energizes at-risk youth
  • Advances and supports our veterans

The Apprenticeship Acceleration Program is a flexible model that allows educators to customize the framework and identify and track the RTI (Related Training Instruction) and OJT (On-the-Job Training) required for apprenticeship education. Key benefits include:

  • Tooling U-SME partners with Department of Labor (DOL) state apprenticeship offices, education, workforce agencies, and the manufacturing community to build capacity and provide workforce education to fill the skills gap
  • This program will help manufacturers evaluate worker performance levels to recruit and develop a highly skilled workforce, ensuring enterprise-wide consistency and making your workforce more flexible and dynamic, ultimately reducing labor costs
  • This program helps mentors use competency-based indicators to accurately evaluate worker performance levels, which reduces subjective assessment.
  • The OJT and RTI provide a direct path to feed the talent pipeline within the manufacturing community
