Education & Workforce Development

We haven’t succeeded in reviving American manufacturing if we haven’t created opportunities for a more developed, diverse workforce to manage, design, and build the future with all the technological advantages that robotics provides.

At ARM, we believe that there are several paths to a high-paying and in-demand career in robotics. Our project calls center on preparing our workforce to work in an Industry 4.0 mindset, collaboratively with robotic solutions in a safe, high-satisfaction environment. Depending on the project call, we impact students at every education stage, from students and young adults to displaced workers.

Catalyzing Workforce Innovation

  • Build ARM’s Educational Partner Network to promote broader participation in certification and educational programs.
  • Inform, educate and support SMEs through our expanding network of industries involved in education and workforce development programs.
  • Train, certify and offer internships to students and educators.
  • Address diversity through research-based STEM and industry-recognized ARM certifications.
