Washington, DC, -  The Get Skills to Work Initiative announced today that more than 50 colleges are now part of the Get Skills to Work coalition. Get Skills to Work, a partnership among the Manufacturing Institute, GE, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Alcoa, and more than 500 manufacturing companies, will work with these institutions of higher education to further expand accelerated training and certification opportunities for U.S. veterans in advanced manufacturing.

Many veterans have training and experience that match up to manufacturing careers, in areas as diverse as welding, machining, logistics, and maintenance. For those veterans requiring additional training and industry certifications to prepare for the civilian manufacturing workforce, accelerated postsecondary programs can bridge the gap for transitioning veterans. The schools in the coalition prioritize veterans in their training programs, align programs to manufacturing industry certifications, and maximize opportunities for veterans to use their GI Bill and other benefits toward technical training.
