Wiregrass FAME Chapter

The Wiregrass Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education (AL FAME) - Wiregrass Chapter's mission is to create a pipeline of global-best, entry-level multiskilled maintenance technicians to support manufacturers in and near Dothan.  Wiregrass FAME delivers the Advanced Manufacturing Technician (AMT) program to develop and grow a skilled pipeline of workers through the engagement of the current and future workforce in partnership with industry and the community.



The Wiregrass FAME Chapter is a grassroots, employer driven program focused on developing highly skilled Advanced Manufacturing Technicians (AMTs). The Wiregrass Chapter has been founded by key local employers and key community partners. Over time, this program is designed to create a pipeline of highly trained individuals who can transition to full-time employment upon graduation. For participating companies, this program is critical to fill the skills gaps in advanced manufacturing operations.

If you are a recent high school graduate, transitioning military member, or an individual looking to move into a high tech, high paying career path, the FAME program could be for you. This program is designed to give you hands-on experience while also providing you time to complete a two year associates degree. During the program, you will receive formal classroom training two days per week and work onsite at your sponsoring company three days a week. The program focuses on professional presence (soft skills), lean manufacturing acumen, and technical skill attainment. As a program graduate you will be ready to enter the workforce full time with the skills needed to be successful - and with the potential of no school debt!
