information about the program

The Canada Advanced Manufacturing Leader training program is a 12-week training program to help provide participants with skills needed to start mid-level careers within the advanced manufacturing sector including technical training, leadership skills, job readiness and job placements. 

The training will utilize a hybrid model approach with in-person and online training. It will be provided within BC, Alberta, and Ontario. Training will focus on participants who already have skills and experience, helping them to expand upon prior education and work experience and respond to the need for mid-to-high level careers within the manufacturing sector.

Upon completion of training, participants will receive up to 12 weeks of job placement support.

Canada’s manufacturing sector, particularly SMEs, faces a severe national skills shortage and an impending wave of retirements, requiring a 20-30% increase in skilled workers. EMC plans to address this by leveraging their Manufacturing Essentials Certification (MEC) program to train and upskill workers in key roles. The program involves employer investment, integrates with workplace experience, and covers essential skills, advanced manufacturing, and leadership for Production Workers, Maintenance Workers, and Supervisors, helping to bridge the skills gap in the industry.
