YOUR PIPELINE TO AMERICA’S PROVEN LEADERS


Every year, more than 200,000 U.S. service members return to civilian life. These are men and women who put their talents to work in a mission larger than themselves, accustomed to working in teams toward common goals and in possession of skills and talents that would make them excellent additions to any manufacturing team. So, at a time when the manufacturing industry is facing a workforce crisis, why would we not connect our nation’s heroes to rewarding manufacturing careers? Manufacturers get top-quality talent, and service members get top-quality career opportunities—it’s a win-win.

The Manufacturing Institute launched Heroes MAKE America to build a pipeline between the military and manufacturing. Our signature program is a full-time Department of Defense–approved career skills program aimed at connecting manufacturers with highly qualified candidates. Our program arms those participants with the exact in demand qualifications and industry-specific certifications they need to not only find a perfect manufacturing career but excel in it.

Heroes MAKE America is open to soldiers within their last six months of military service, veterans and military spouses. Heroes enrolls transitioning service members while they are still on active duty, enabling them to continue to receive military pay and benefits.

Program highlights:
  • Approved Department of Defense SkillBridge Program
  • Up to 10 weeks of accelerated training
  • Certifications include Certified Production Technician, OSHA 10 and Fork Lift Operation
  • Essential manufacturing credentials: safety, quality, maintenance, manufacturing processes and production
  • Weekly modern manufacturing tours
  • Career readiness instruction--resume writing, interview skills, LinkedIn training
  • Placement Support--connections and guidance during career search and interview process
