Apprenticeship Info Session: Addressing the Manufacturing Talent Shortage

It’s not a secret. Industry 4.0 is challenging manufacturers to integrate new technology and find employees with the appropriate expertise in addition to the looming retirement of about 22 percent of manufacturing employees expected over the next 10-15 years. Finding the right talent now is critical.

Join Automation Alley at Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center for a free info session to learn more about implementing a registered apprenticeship program. Registered apprenticeship is a tried and true approach for preparing workers for the skilled jobs of today and the Industry 4.0 era of automated and digitized manufacturing.

Learn about ApprenticeshipUSA, a Department of Labor funded grant partnership between Automation Alley and the state of Michigan, that can provide assistance with implementing this proven on-the-job training and retention strategy.

It’s time to close the skills gap and transfer knowledge to the next generation of workers to ensure the training of future leaders.
