Kansas City FAME Chapter and Kansas City Kansas Community College Technical Education Center announce the U.S. House approved $1.9 million for the FAME/Automation Engineering Technology Program project sponsored by U.S. Rep. Sharice Davids in the 3rd District.

This investment will be used to purchase equipment, allowing students to train on real-life automation equipment as they prepare to enter the workforce.

The FAME program provides classroom and hands-on technical training in multiple manufacturing disciplines including robotics, electronic controls, mechanical, hydraulics, and automation. Moreover, AMT (Advanced Manufacturing Technician) students will be trained in formal business tools such as developing a safety culture, quality tools, lean manufacturing, and workplace organization while learning professional behaviors like attendance, teamwork, communication and initiative.

The Kansas City FAME Chapter is underway in recruitment for their first training cohort to begin in the Fall 2022.
