LIFT/IACMI Learning Hub
The LIFT/IACMI Learning Hub is a joint education and workforce development initiative between LIFT and IACMI – The Composites Institute, two Manufacturing USA institutes, providing the first nationally relevant, open source and scalable online library of lightweighting and composites related education materials for use by educators and students at all levels. The creation of the Learning Hub is directly tied to the goal of the Manufacturing USA institutes to build and support the skilled and educated manufacturing workforce of the future and address the skills gap.
Over the next decade, there are expected to be nearly 3.5 million U.S. manufacturing jobs needing to be filled. However, it is expected that 2 million of those jobs will go unfilled due to the existing skills gap in workers with the skills and training to fill those jobs.
To prevent the skills gap from growing even wider, the LIFT/IACMI Learning Hub puts the educational resources right at the fingertips of teachers and students.
