WASHINGTON, -  Today, in partnership with The White House’s release of the Advanced Manufacturing Partnership (AMP) 2.0 Report: Accelerating U.S. Advanced Manufacturing, The Manufacturing Institute launched how-to guides to build a workforce-ready talent pipeline in communities across the country. The official recommendations of the partnership include launching a national campaign to support Manufacturing Day, increasing the implementation of industry-based skills certifications, and curating toolkits to scale and replicate important talent development opportunities, via The Manufacturing Institute.

For the past year, The Manufacturing Institute has worked with the nation's top manufacturers, educators, and community leaders to tackle the skills gap with a focus on results. Leading the workforce efforts to “Secure the Talent Pipeline” were Eric Spiegel, president and CEO of Siemens, USA, and Dr. Annette Parker, president of South Central College and a member of the Institute’s Education Council. The Institute has created a variety of toolkits that provide step-by-step implementation of the Skills Certification System, helping manufacturers, educators and community leaders develop a plan to develop and grow a pipeline to ensure a supply of future skilled talent.

Institute President Jennifer McNelly will participate in the release of the AMP 2.0 Report in Washington, D.C. to discuss how manufacturers, educators and community leaders can utilize industry-based certifications to close the skills gap.
