MACWIC is the statewide focal point for employer-led workforce training initiatives. The purpose of MACWIC is to preserve manufacturing tribal knowledge and to execute the transfer of knowledge and critical skills to the current and future workforce.
The Applied Manufacturing Technology Pathway Certification is a standard instruction set and evaluation process, which is continuously improved. Employers can readily understand the skill set of an applicant, reducing the cost of hire.
Apprenticeships and On-the-Job Training (OJT) are still the most popular methods of training but, without a formal program, are not the most efficient or cost effective method. With a structured program, employees receive consistent and effective training regardless of who trains them.
Networking is the key to success in business. Relationship building and networking help you find customers and recruit talent. MACWIC provides the venue for like-minded business people to create and capitalize on business opportunities.
