Ohio FAME - OH! FAME Chapter
Manufacturing continuously evolves with the introduction of automation and technology, and this evolution will undoubtedly change what skillsets employees need. Investing in the OH! FAME program provides an opportunity to shape the adaptability and knowledge of future workers while also considering their value as the rest of the workforce ages toward retirement
DIVE INTO A CHALLENGING ADVANCED MANUFACTURING CAREER
OH! FAME uses the nationally recognized Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education (FAME) program to instill professional knowledge and skills among persons working in advanced manufacturing. FAME’s earn-while-you-learn apprenticeship model provides participants a respected pathway toward an industry-recognized degree and on-the-job training. In less than two years, program graduates earn an associate degree, an Advanced Manufacturing Technician (AMT) Certification, and log approximately 1,800 hours at their sponsoring company. OH! FAME’s apprenticeship program requires participants to attend classes at Owens Community College’s Findlay Campus two days per week and work first shift alongside an assigned mentor three days per week (at least 24 hours) at their sponsoring company.
