Webinar: How an Accelerated Manufacturing Training Program Creates Pipeline of Talent

Tuesday, July 21 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am • Organized By Missouri Enterprise, Kansas City and Northwest Missouri
Online Event


Despite some companies experiencing hiring freezes due to the pandemic, many manufacturers are needing to ramp up their workforce to keep up with production. In this webinar, we will highlight a workforce development program that we offer in joint coordination with job centers across the state to quickly train individuals for entry-level manufacturing positions. This five-day event is offered at NO COST to participating individuals as well as to manufacturers who interview and hire them. The presentation will provide an overview of the curriculum which includes blueprint reading, manufacturing concepts, soft skill development, Lean practices and more. Additionally, we will have some guest speakers to share how this program works as well as how it helped their recruitment and retention efforts. Manufacturers are more desperate than ever to connect with skilled and motivated individuals. This course creates a pipeline of competent and eager workers who have a week of manufacturing skills and knowledge under their belts. It truly is a win, win, win for all involved.
