PLEASE NOTE: The INAM Consortium was funded by a $12.9 million grant from the Department of Labor and tasked with delivering certificate programs in Advanced Manufacturing that can be completed in one year or less and prepare participants for employment in high-wage, high-skill occupations. While the INAM grant project has ended, these training programs remain vibrant at the individual Community Colleges. Please visit the colleges for ongoing program information.
In addition to the six key skill sets that were targeted by INAM under their Department of Labor grant (Certified Production Technician, Mechatronics, Automated Equipment Maintenance, Metal Working, Precision Machining, and Green Technologies), there are numerous other career options that fell under Advanced Manufacturing. Following is a detailed list of other appropriate community college programs, including non-credit programs, college-preparation bridge programs, external credentialing programs, college certificates, associate degree programs and four-year college transfer opportunities.
