Tennessee Chamber boosts manufacturing job training

1/9/2017

The Tennessee Chamber of Commerce & Industry is partnering to build a robust pipeline of talent for the state’s manufacturing industry.

The business group, which also serves as the Tennessee Manufacturers Association, is joining with LIFT (Lightweight Innovations For Tomorrow), a Manufacturing USA institute, to strengthen educational pathways to post-secondary manufacturing-related credentials.

LIFT and the Chamber will share insights on innovations to identify and promote new opportunities in the manufacturing sector and encourage more people to consider the field as a career choice.

“By partnering with a national institute like LIFT, we will be able to connect the many resources we have across our state to achieve that goal,” Bradley Jackson, the chamber’s CEO, said.
