The Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education (FAME) is an employer-led program to provide and manage career pathways which produce global-best, entry level talent to member employers in key occupational fields. The goal is to address and resolve workforce problems with talent acquisition by providing workers in sufficient numbers based on each member employer’s need, on time, and of global-best talent to ensure business competitiveness. The program includes a strong employer-college activity in which both parties work together in close partnership to mutually promote, guide, manage, and co-educate students in the core Advanced Manufacturing Technician (AMT) Program. Each party has mutual obligations that must be met in order for the program to succeed, to accomplish its goals, and to service its employer members.
