This project allows active military personnel to learn essential manufacturing skills that will give them a critical foundation for pursuing a career after their service.


While military personnel are on a base still serving, permission can be granted to train for up to 6 months for civilian skills occupations. The Industry 4.0 Academy will be a virtual training system, using online training tools, which will enable training to occur at any base in the U.S. with a regular computer, internet and mouse. The completion of training will result in pre-trained candidates with shorter time to full occupational competency.


Strengthen the manufacturing workforce by training transitioning military.
