The Next Generation Aerospace Manufacturing Training Program
The Aerospace Manufacturing training program was originally created in 2008 by Aerospace Consortium members to create a manufacturing talent pipeline focused on transferable skills for aircraft composites fabrication and assembly. The Consortium’s Skills committee came together in 2017 to revamp the AMTP curriculum to meet the demands of the next generation aircraft requirements. The driving force behind the development of the Aerospace Manufacturing Training Program (AMTP) was to build a skilled workforce pipeline for the region and provide students with hands-on and classroom instruction in basic manufacturing and aircraft assembly skills.
