Too few young people choose careers in Advanced Mfg & Industrial fields
Difficulty finding workers with basic employability, academic, technical skills
Aging workforce, losing intellectual talent
Difficulty finding training providers that are flexible to meet employer needs
People with QA/QC, ISO, Six-Sigma Knowledge
Technical writing skills
Issues related to scaling up production
Cost and reliability of power
Lack of access to manufacturing resources
Not aware of Colorado resources
Innovation / Intellectual property / technology transfer assistance

• Specific
80-85% of capacity
Course Length
• Associated Material Expenses
Example: 6 students/group
• Lab Books & Reference Materials
16 hrs of training = $640 ea
in a mobile lab setting
• Travel expenses

Most Recent Grant Program:
H-1B Technical Skills Training Grant
Managed through the Workforce Centers
• Financed by a user fee paid by employers to bring foreign workers into the
United States under the H-1B nonimmigrant visa program
• Provides education, training, and job placement assistance in the occupations
and industries for which employers are using H-1B visas to hire foreign workers
• Raise the technical skill levels of U.S. workers and reduce the number of foreign
workers taking high-skill, high-paying jobs in the United States
• Colorado awarded $5 million statewide grant in October 2011

On the Horizon:
Machining Apprenticeship Program
• Recent request from EVRAZ-Rocky Mountain Steel Mill for a program
• Several companies in Colorado Springs have expressed an interest
• Researching national models for a state-wide approach we can adopt
• Arizona (Maricopa Community College)
Major needs in the Denver Metro area,
• Washington State
working with Jeffco now!
• Iowa
• Desire is to be centrally administered, and locally flexible
• Align with the NIMS Credentialing/Certification process
• Link to degree options through community colleges and other
technical training providers
• Start with the basics as early as 1st qtr 2013

Opportunities for Partnering and Collaboration
• Through the Governor’s Office of Economic Development & International Trade,
form a state-wide Manufacturing Alliance that will serve to support R&D,
process improvement and job growth, Supply Chain development, etc.
• Create the “Colorado Workforce Network” made up of customized training
services providers, break down service area barriers that are not in the best
interest of the employers
• Combine resources to serve employers (driven by best resource for needs)
• Based on a successful machining apprenticeship model, expand to other fields
• Others?
