Manufacturing Advancement Program
The MCNTMA and Goodwill Industries of Michiana partnered to create the M.A.P. (Manufacturing Advancement Program) to address the skills gap and workforce development challenges of our community. An innovative way to train employees for companies' tough to fill positions, trainees will receive personalized hands-on digital skills training advancing to the NTMA-U pre-apprentice program where they will learn basic blueprint, shop math and machining. Goodwill Industries of Michiana provides recruitment resources, training case management, hands-on support and resources for career placement with member companies.



NTMA-U is an innovative program of online education that bridges the gap between traditional degree programs and skills-based certification curricula. NTMA-U is a DOL-FBAT approved, college accredited on-line skills training/apprentice program which allows students to move through content at their own pace and own their own schedule.
