Right Skills Now is a manufacturing and workforce training program that will be piloted in Minnesota. Earlier this year, President Obama asked manufacturers to team up with educators at community and technical colleges to create a fast-track credentialing system for up to 500,000 more workers in advanced manufacturing across the country.

Through a partnership between the President’s Jobs Council, the National Association of Manufacturers, The Manufacturing Institute, South Central College and Dunwoody College of Technology, Minnesota’s Right Skills Now program will be a leading step toward achieving that goal.  Read the White House press release here.
