Manufacturing Education at CAAM
Our manufacturing education solutions comprise a wide range of activities, including industry-driven academic and training curriculum development and delivery. This training delivers manufacturing workplace competencies by establishing a unified workforce preparation system, training and educational programs, curriculum, educational articulation pathways and certifications.
This initiative is built around promoting demand-driven industry certifications, such as the Manufacturing Skill Standards Council's (MSSC) "Certified Production Technician" (CPT) credential, which addresses portable production competencies: Manufacturing Production and Process, Safety, Maintenance Awareness, and Quality and Continuous Improvement. The Institute has also designed training curricula to address these critical skills, along with curricula that align with MSSC’s Certified Logistics Associate (CLA) and American Society of Transportation and Logistics’ (AST&L) Global Logistics Associate (GLA), among other credentials.
How The College Alliance for Advanced Manufacturing Benefits Business
The College Alliance for Advanced Manufacturing has positioned itself as a key resource to develop a trained workforce for the growth and sustainability of Florida manufacturers. With this education, businesses will benefit with an increased level of productivity and expansion of the state’s manufacturing capabilities.
According to recent surveys, 84% of business executives feel that U.S. manufacturing has a talent shortage. The Institute is taking the statewide lead in creating, coordinating, and providing knowledge and skills upgrade training based on the needs identified by Florida manufacturers. The curricula we developed have been used statewide and outside of Florida to train thousands of manufacturing employees, unemployed workers seeking a career in manufacturing and secondary school students.
