Workforce development is a major challenge for manufacturers. Hiring and retaining skilled workers is key to staying competitive and profitable in our industry. PMA and the PMA Educational Foundation (PMAEF) realize how important this is for our members and have partnered with the PMA Twin Cities District to showcase initiatives and resources available to help overcome this challenge.

Attendees will learn about:

  • Accessing the PMAEF website
  • How to apply for PMA district grants for workforce development initiatives
  • Resources available through PMAEF
  • Resources available through Center 4 Metalforming Careers (C4MC), powered by PMAEF
  • Demo of PMA’s new online training
  • Benefits of how online learning is helping to develop today’s industrial workforce, such as:
    o Learning process simplified
    o Time saved and cost reduction
    o Interaction and engagement
    o Streamlined learning
  • PMA technical seminars related to workforce development
