About the Advanced Manufacturing Alliance

The North Carolina Advanced Manufacturing Alliance is a statewide initiative, funded by the U.S. Department of Labor to grow the number of North Carolinians with industry-recognized credentials for advanced manufacturing.  The Alliance is a consortium of ten community colleges led by Robeson Community College that is partnering closely with industry to meet an existing shortfall of workers for this growing sector in the state.  Using state-of-the-art equipment for hands-on training and a new approach to learning, students with appropriate certificates, degrees or diplomas are being placed as interns with local advanced manufacturing companies where they can obtain the necessary workplace experience for full-time employment.
