Workforce Development Support

The MPMA is a leader in manufacturing workforce development in Minnesota. We are impacting the image and importance of manufacturing through the following initiatives:

Expedited Skills Development: 10 years’ experience in five

  • Developing a revolutionary advanced skills training program. The Academy combines traditional machine tool technology school training, self-driven training through TITANS of CNC: Academy, and employer-structured apprenticeship.

Partnership with Community Programs

  • Partnering with a local community program that trains people for technical careers. We identify people from their programs to increase and diversify our labor pool.

Launching High School Technical Programs

  • Supporting high school programs using a blitz approach by working with instructors, school administrators, other successful schools, local industry, and legislative leaders.


Legislative Representation

At the state Capitol, MPMA advances legislation that impacts our industry. We spearheaded the legislation that created the Youth Skills Training Program in 2017, and we continually work to strengthen Minnesota's skilled workforce and the manufacturing economy by having a lobbyist representing our interests. Learn how to get involved.
