Celebrating Manufacturing Day 2021!

Manufacturing Day – MFG Day – helps show the reality of modern manufacturing careers by encouraging thousands of companies and educational institutions around the nation to open their doors to students, parents, teachers, and community leaders.

The annual and nationwide celebration gives us a tremendous opportunity to spotlight our innovation and all of our diverse initiatives to support women, veterans, students and workers through skills training programs, community building and career advancement in manufacturing.

MFG Day is an initiative of The Manufacturing Institute, with the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association as a founding partner.

Apprenticeships: A Solution to Attracting and Retaining Skilled Workers

The InTech Center provides hands-on, accelerated education to enhance an apprentice’s on-the-job training. Through this experience, an apprentice will be able to achieve journey-level status in two – four years, becoming an expert in their trade.

For employers who are struggling to find skilled workers, competency-based apprenticeships provide a pipeline of well-trained, qualified candidates. Registered apprenticeships combine curriculum and on-the-job training that prepare trainees for today’s workplace. Learn more.
