The National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS; Fairfax, Virginia) is partnering with Focus: Hope (Detroit, Michigan), a nonprofit civil and human rights organization, to develop a robust apprenticeship program in Michigan. The project was selected as a winner of the U.S. Department of Labor’s American Apprenticeship Initiative grant program and will build on NIMS’ competency-based apprenticeship model to help fill in-demand technical jobs in manufacturing.

NIMS will serve as an engaged partner with the Focus: Hope American Apprenticeship Program through identifying the skills and competencies people need to enter into and complete advanced manufacturing apprenticeship programs; supporting the development of career pathways, apprenticeship models, and tools and integration of NIMS credentials; aligning training programs to industry standards; and providing technical assistance to schools, employers and other partners.
