The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), via its Manufacturing Institute, is one of the leading entities for providing a pipeline of supply chain talent, and its latest endeavor is going high-tech to reskill the military community for factory careers. On August 12, NAM shared that it has partnered with TRANSFR, an education startup that utilizes virtual reality for training simulations, to provide an immersive learning experience for current military members as they transition into manufacturing careers, as well as for veterans or military spouses. “Veterans represent a sought-after pool of talent who bring many of the skills and aptitudes required for success in the manufacturing workforce,” said Babs Chase, who leads the Manufacturing Institute’s military and veterans programs. “This initiative will harness the power of simulation-based training to help service members rapidly translate their skills and experiences into the most in-demand skills needed in the industry.”
