Expanding IACMI's workforce strategy
Supporting industry’s workforce needs with education and training
Leveraging program successes and industry partnerships made during IACMI’s first five-years
IACMI hosts interns each year at IACMI partner and member locations. Through the IACMI Internship Program, students have an opportunity to participate in a hands-on, research experience with an assigned mentor at one of IACMI’s partner or member organizations. The internship provides a maximum of 400 hours of participation either in a 10-week, short-term appointment or a long-term appointment spanning the course of one year.
IACMI engages communities across the United States in recognizing employment opportunities in composites manufacturing, appreciating the involvement of composites-related organizations in their community, and training a future workforce that is excited about and driven to join the composites industry. By participating in Manufacturing Day, an internationally recognized event organized by the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), IACMI celebrates a day to focus attention on the workforce development opportunities in the composites industry.
