Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education (FAME) has Chapter at Daytona State College

The Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education (FAME) (https://fame-usa.com) provides global workforce development through solid technical training, integration of manufacturing core competencies, intensive professional practices, and intentional hands-on experience to build the future of the modern manufacturing industry. Led by manufacturers and supported by education partners, FAME establishes a best-in-class curriculum encompassing hands-on and virtual programming that provides authentic, tangible solutions to the industry’s toughest challenges in skills training and workforce development across various industries within manufacturing. FAME was created by Toyota and moved to the Manufacturing Institute for national scaling in 2019.

Today, the Manufacturing Institute, as the workforce development and education partner of the National Association of Manufacturers, is proud to manage FAME USA as it continues to grow across the country with the support of more than 400 manufacturers. The FAME model facilitates employer-led partnerships between a company and local educational institutions and establishes a channel for recruiting diverse, high-achieving, and career-oriented students. Once established, the cooperative of local employers that make up the FAME Chapter will generate a continuous pipeline of skilled technicians through the AMT program.

FAME helps students become highly skilled, globally competitive, well-rounded, and sought-after talent that can meet the unique needs and challenges of today’s modern manufacturing workforce. Every year, FAME graduates transition into well-paying, diverse career pathways in critical disciplines across the manufacturing industry and country. The college partner must be willing to work with the Chapter to ensure adherence to the FAME model--which includes delivering the technical knowledge, teaching and supporting the Manufacturing Core Exercises, and instilling Professional Behaviors in each cohort of FAME students.

Daytona State College has adopted the FAME model. It has mapped its E.T. curriculum to FAME outcomes (https://daytonastate.edu/academic-departments/college-of-business-engineering-and-technology/school-of-computer-science/fame.html). The earn-while-you-learn model provides students the pathway to earn an industry-recognized degree while gaining valuable experience at a sponsoring company. Program graduates earn an Engineering Technology Associate of Science degree in two years and log approximately 1,800 paid on-the-job hours at their sponsoring company. Students participate in the 40+ hour per week training program where they attend college twice a week and work three days a week (at least 24 hours) at their sponsoring company.

To learn more about FAME, you can attend one of three scheduled sessions (https://calendly.com/jtonydavis/fame-overview) on October 30th, -11 a.m., November 9th- 2:00 p.m., or November 14th-3:00 p.m.
