Florida FAME

The Florida Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education (FL FAME) mission is to drive workforce development initiatives across the state of Florida.  FLFAME’s primary focus is 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.


You’re smart, career-oriented, and ready for a well-paying career right now. With Florida Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education (FL FAME), you can dive into a challenging advanced manufacturing career while receiving the education needed to build your resume and make you highly marketable to manufacturers across the state.

Once you’re accepted into FL FAME, you will begin work on a combination education/training program to earn an associate’s degree as an Advanced Manufacturing Technician (AMT). During the week, you will attend classes at a local community college and work for a local employer – all while being paid a competitive wage for your work.

After five semesters you will have earned an Associate’s degree in Applied Science in Advanced Manufacturing Technician Track, 60 college credit hours, and two years of work experience. At that point, you’ll be ready to enter the workforce full time with all the skills needed to succeed - and with the potential of no school debt!
