DOL offers competency model for advanced manufacturing.


The U.S. Department of Department of Labor has announced the creation of a set of resources for advanced manufacturers to use in attracting and training workers for careers. Part of the President's High Growth Job Training Initiative, the resources include training materials that address tasks such as working with spreadsheets, interpretation of CAD drawings, and database navigation and reporting. The elements were created based on recommendations from industry organizations.

According to the DOL, the framework allows for consistency across industries, customization within sectors, and easy updating to accommodate new technologies. Targeted industries include advanced manufacturing, aerospace, automotive, energy, health care, transportation and others. For more information, visit .
