Robeson Community College

North Carolina Advanced Manufacturing Alliance


Welcome to the NC Advanced Manufacturing Alliance

The North Carolina Advanced Manufacturing Alliance comprises 10 community colleges that are providing specialized training to people to prepare them for employment in the advanced manufacturing sector.  An $18 million grant from the U.S. DOL is providing the consortium of colleges with funding for equipment equivalent to what is used by advanced manufacturing companies in North Carolina. 

The Alliance is accelerating the training of people who have become unemployed and dislocated as a result of offshoring and giving them the skills and credentials North Carolina employers need for well-paid jobs. It is using curricula for its state-of-the-art equipment and students are equipped with iPads for online connectivity to their coursework and their success managers.  Additionally, it is accredited by the national industry organization, NCCER, to provide instructor accreditation and training in North Carolina.

Read the Advanced Manufacturing Alliance’s plan to create a pipeline of well-trained workers for this sector. Progress, developments, implementation and news is at our News blog.
