INDIANA'S LEADING ADVOCATE FOR INDUSTRY

INFAME DEC 10 EVENT DELIVRA SNIPPET VERSION.png

ABOUT THE EVENT / PROGRAM

THE ISSUE

According to a study by Deloitte and The Manufacturing Institute, the manufacturing skills gap — which is now anticipated to leave 2.1 million jobs unfilled by 2030 — could cost the U.S. economy as much as $1 trillion. U.S. manufacturers surveyed believe that finding the right talent is now 36% harder than it was in 2018, even as the unemployment rate hit historical highs. Seventy-seven percent of surveyed manufacturers say they will have ongoing difficulties in attracting and retaining workers.

THE SOLUTION
The Indiana Manufacturers Association's workforce initiative, INFAME (The Indiana Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education), has teamed with FAME USA (The Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education) and local Indiana employers throughout various regions in the state to implement a work-and-learn, apprenticeship-style associate degree program called the Advanced Manufacturing Technician (AMT) Program. INFAME works with Indiana employers who agree to collaborate with the area educational provider (Ivy Tech or Vincennes University) and offer work experience to students several days a week while they also attend classes on alternate days. 

THE EVENT
Join us for this free event on December 10th to hear more about this unique program that provides students hands-on experience, mentorship and educational skills to make them successful upon graduation. Many graduates go on to work for the companies where they did their training. This event will give you details into the specifics of the program.
