This project involves insight from SMMs on gaps in training and uses a combination of on and off-site training to give students perspective on the opportunities robotics provides in manufacturing.
This apprenticeship program is intended to provide a pipeline of certified robotics technicians for small and medium sized manufacturers. The results from this project will include a report on SMMs needs with the resulting curriculum addressing those needs. Additionally, the program will enhance existing training resources, provide in-class training, offer lab/experiential, and secure industry-led training for participants at manufacturing job sites.
Provide an apprenticeship pathway for participants to become certified robotics technicians.
