    Advanced Manufacturing Competency Model

    The competency model framework for Advanced Manufacturing was developed through a collaborative effort involving the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) and leading industry organizations.
    To ensure that the model reflects the knowledge and skills needed by today's manufacturing workforce ETA worked with its industry partners to update the original model. Completed in April 2010, the updated model contains new information on Sustainable and Green Manufacturing, as well as updated key behaviors in several competency areas. For more information, download the Summary of Changes.
