The U.S. is in a prime position to become a global leader in manufacturing thanks to several factors. However, we are facing several challenges to get there including the need for more skilled workers. Communities of all sizes are dependent on good paying manufacturing jobs. In this session we will discuss the competencies and skills required to help manufacturers achieve the higher level of productivity required to compete globally and reshore more jobs. We will discuss how CESMII and Tooling U-SME are joining forces to train the workforce with these skills.
