Advanced Manufacturing Training Program Kicks Off

MASP launched an Advanced Manufacturing Open Entry/Open Exit (OE2) training program today for regional manufacturing workers. Several Southern Indiana employers are participating in the first rotation of the program.

OE2 gives employers the ability to customize content to meet their own particular training needs, with the flexibility to adapt the curriculum to match each employee’s experience level. The self-paced courses, with training provided by Ivy Tech Community College, will allow students to complete the classes without having to disrupt work schedules. The model develops job-ready skills that will yield a significant return on investment for employers.

The end result will be a workforce better able to meet the advanced skill requirements of today’s manufacturing environment. There will be four 10-week rotations throughout the year. Each rotation is customizable, using curriculum in mechanical, fluid power, electrical, electronics and general workplace training.
