Washington AMT Workshop
Do you want to start the AMT Program?
Purpose of the AMT Workshop
• Provide the information needed for teams from local communities which are interested in starting the Advanced Manufacturing Career Pathways/AMT Program in their region to return home and facilitate the dialogue needed to make a decision to implement.
• Teach teams and attendees on the basics of the AMT Program so that they more fully understand the benefits and impacts that this program can have in their local community on jobs, opportunities for citizens, businesses, and strengthening the economic foundation and well-being of the region.
• Connect teams and attendees to the larger network of active programs in the AMCP to support their implementation journey.
• Educate the teams and attendees on the next steps needed to move forward.
• Familiarize teams and attendees with the resources at their disposal to assist them in moving forward.
2 ½ days. Two full days Tuesday and Wednesday will be followed by a half-day on Thursday.
The Workshop starts at 7 AM EDT each morning.
Who should attend?
From each interested local region, a team composed of the key players needed to facilitate a local discussion to reach a consensus and decision to start the AMCP/AMT Program. The teams should consist of 4-6 people and should include at least one representative from the following categories:
• Employers, who are the lead entity in a local program.
• Workforce/Economic Development representative.
• Educators, especially from the potential 2-year college that would consider hosting the academic portion of the AMT Program. The representative from the potential College Partner should be at a decision-maker level. It is also encouraged to have an administrative level representative from a local school district that would potentially be a feeder for the AMT Program.
• Community organization representative, who can connect with the local communities which can both provide potential applicants for the program as well as be a conduit for information and support.
• A technical job content expert, who can understand both the technical basis behind the program as well as provide input and advice on how to connect job and work outcomes with the education needed to achieve them.
