Welcome to the Advanced Manufacturing Career Pathways/AMT Program new national website!
Manufacturers across the United States are facing a workforce nearing retirement, and lack young workers to fill their empty jobs. With two million manufacturing jobs expected to go unfilled in the next decade, the reality is setting in that manufacturers are experiencing a serious and imminent talent crisis. The AMCP/AMT Program effectively answers the major talent problems with which American manufacturers are struggling: procurement of new, job-ready technicians and new-to-field talent that is globally best.
Many people do not realize the demanding, fulfilling, and diverse roles that manufacturing has to offer. Modern manufacturing gives you the chance to design and build the future, with lifelong skills and jobs that are more advanced, well-paying, and sustainable. Manufacturing may be the answer to the world’s problems – it saves lives, eliminates poverty, boosts global trade, and without it, the U.S. would not be the world leader it is today.
The AMT Program directly aligns with The Manufacturing Institute’s major education initiatives to develop a manufacturing workforce and talent pipeline. With the help of the AMT Program, manufacturing in the United States will remain competitive and continue to improve the economy. This new website will take the AMT Program to the next level and contribute to growing the workforce we need, one student at a time.
I hope you enjoy the website, and thank you for your commitment to this industry.
