Advanced Manufacturing Workforce Development

The Advanced Manufacturing Workforce Development Coalition (AMWDC) is an employer-led initiative to continue to build the advanced manufacturing talent pipeline in Northern Kentucky. The Coalition is comprised of steering committees in Talent Supply, Marketing and Metrics which oversee the outreach and recruitment efforts to attract high school students and continuing education adults to advanced manufacturing careers.

The AMWDC works closely with the Northern Kentucky Chapter of the Kentucky Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education (KY FAME) to disseminate information about career opportunities in manufacturing, including the Advanced Manufacturing Technician program.
