The Illinois Network for Advanced Manufacturing (INAM), Palatine, Ill., has launched its new website to connect training programs, prospective workers, and the business community and address the manufacturing skills gap.
The website at www.inam.net serves as a resource for students, faculty, and industry professionals preparing to enter or re-enter the manufacturing field through advanced training and education.
Funded through a U.S. Department of Labor grant, INAM comprises 21 community colleges throughout Illinois offering certificates and degrees in six advanced manufacturing fields. Its programs, all of which are two years or less, lead to careers in fields including certified production technician, mechatronics and robotics, industrial maintenance, metalworking/welding, precision CNC machining, and green technologies.
