Partnerships between employers in the advanced manufacturing sector and Ontario Tech University are providing short programs that help manufacturing workers and managers adapt their skills as they work in a changing industry. Not only does this type of programming benefit employees, it also helps employers advance local industry and build the workforce they need.
These short programs are offered through the Continuous Studies office at Ontario Tech, and focus on the transferability of specific skills, as well as the development of project management skills. The university is also in the process of developing short Master’s Certificates designed to assist managers to move from one sector to another, as well as a program that allows workers from the automotive and broader manufacturing sector to use their experience and knowledge to transition into a new industry.
