The Advanced Manufacturing Competency Model now reflects the knowledge and skills needed by today’s manufacturing workforce.

For the first time, the rapidly growing electronics/semiconductor manufacturing industry is represented in this model.

ETA worked with SEMI, the industry association representing the end-to-end electronics design and manufacturing supply chain, and other industry partners to refresh the model last updated in 2010. The updated model represents a unification of competencies across a wider range of industries related to Advanced Manufacturing and identifies the skill sets required to strengthen connections among the Advanced Manufacturing industry, workers, and education and training providers.

Competency models are great tools for conversations with employers and community colleges to find out how to match competencies with employer needs. Access the newly updated Advanced Manufacturing Competency Model on the Competency Model Clearinghouse
