CUTTING-EDGE ENGINEERING TRAINING
Manufacturers are actively seeking engineers to help drive innovation, quality and productivity. A structured engineering training program empowers your workforce so your business can thrive.
Throughout the manufacturing industry, engineers are in high demand to design and improve products and processes. There is, however, a significant gap between those graduating with STEM degrees and the significant number of open jobs in engineering professions.
According to Bain & Company, 73 percent of engineering- and R&D-focused companies report talent gaps. This talent shortage will expand as baby boomers retire more quickly than new graduates join the industry.
Additionally, as technology changes with the acceleration of Smart Manufacturing, engineering skills development is more important than ever.
Fortunately, some states are receiving federal funding to advance engineering training initiatives. These are especially helping upskill individuals from underserved and economically disadvantaged communities, providing career pathways and good jobs.
To attract the best people, manufacturers must show clear engineering career pathways. With a trend toward paying for skill over tenure, new hires and incumbent engineers can boost their careers through technical training from Tooling U-SME including Smart Manufacturing engineering classes, additive manufacturing engineering classes, maintenance engineering classes and dozens more.

QUICK & SIMPLE TO IMPLEMENT ENGINEERING TRAINING PACKAGES
With rapidly changing technology and pressing production demands, it can be difficult to focus on workforce development. Manufacturing engineers are doing incredible things to ensure companies thrive and training helps ensure that both up-and-coming and incumbent engineers have the skills they need to pursue remarkable achievements in manufacturing technology, processes and materials.
To help, we developed training packages to offer quick-start, progressive road maps in engineering and other functional areas that allow manufacturers to build career paths for employees. They are intended to enhance your existing on-the-job training and help you create a job progression plan. Unlike many other training programs, these packages require minimal preparation. They are efficient, effective training, developed with input from manufacturing experts.
Our virtual engineering training offers classes that cover the basics—engineering fundamentals, engineering principles, introduction to CAD and CAM software—to more advanced topics for an engineering technician, providing upskilling on engineering tools, simulation software and much more.

HANDS-ON EXPERIENCE ENGINEERING APPRENTICESHIPS
Finding qualified early-career engineers is increasingly expensive, competitive, and time-consuming. Engineering apprenticeships, using Tooling U-SME online related training instruction (RTI) paired with on-the-job training, are a talent solution for manufacturers of all sizes.
Trainees learn critical engineering principles while getting real-world experience as they explore the engineering profession.
Our Apprenticeship Framework outlines industry-endorsed RTI hours needed to meet the requirements of a competency-based or hybrid apprenticeship program. It provides a predefined training curriculum that covers job skills, health and safety, foundations in manufacturing engineering, technical expertise for an engineer, and leading and developing people.
EXPAND & VALIDATE SKILLS ENGINEERING CERTIFICATION
Industry-recognized professional engineering certifications can boost careers—and the added workforce expertise helps manufacturers thrive. These earned engineering credentials validate knowledge, skills, and competencies against industry standards.
Engineers and others can use Tooling U-SME’s effective and convenient online training to prepare for SME certifications including:
Certified Manufacturing Technologist (CMfgT): An entry-level certification that benefits both new manufacturing engineers and experienced manufacturing engineers without other credentials. View CMfgT certification classes here.
Certified Manufacturing Engineer (CMfgE): Ideal for those in a leadership position or who have supported manufacturing practices and processes in an organization. View CMfgE certification classes here.
Other leading industry certification exams: These include those offered by the American Welding Society (AWS), Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC), Smart Automation Certification Alliance (SACA) and National Institute of Metalworking Skills (NIMS) and SME’s Lean Certification.
Manufacturers can save valuable time and money by delivering onboarding engineering training where skills are lacking. Uncovering learning gaps and providing targeted engineering training can also help employees at more advanced career stages as well. We can help you evaluate competency strength with 50+ redeveloped assessments including engineering assessments. We can also customize engineering assessments based on your specific needs.
