Advancing manufacturing training for advanced manufacturing
Introduction

The North Carolina Advanced Manufacturing Alliance comprises community colleges across the state providing specialized training for the advanced manufacturing sector. 

The alliance is accelerating the training of people who have become unemployed and dislocated as a result of offshoring and giving them the skills and credentials North Carolina employers need for well-paid jobs.  Additionally, it is accredited by the national industry organization, NCCER, to provide instructor accreditation and training in North Carolina.

The consortium is currently funded through a DOL TAACCCT grant.
