MTS: A Leader In Innovation

In announcing the new "80 to Work" program, MTS's President, Al Stimac, said "with over 600,000 open manufacturing jobs in the United States, a customized skills training program to meet these needs is a major priority. As I travel the country on behalf of the National Association of Manufacturers ("NAM"), the one constant complaint I hear from manufacturing companies is their inability to find qualified workers trained in manufacturing skills. I hope in a small way our new "80 To Work" program can help meet these urgent needs."

Course Offered At MTS Training Center or At Your Business

The "80 to Work" course is offered at MTS's Skills Training Center in Longwood, FL or on-site (5 students minimum) by an MTS instructor using MTS Simulation software and MTS Interactive software. Each student has 24/7 access to the MTS Simulation Software during the entire training program, including the 6 month mentoring period.
