Chicago – Make plans to attend the IMTS 2014 Conferences to learn about Training for Existing and Emerging Technologies.

DATE: Tuesday, September 9 from 3:15 PM - 4:10 PM   ROOM: W-195

SPEAKER: Jeff Estes, Director of Partners in THINC, Okuma America Corp.

With the advent of emerging technologies, like 3D Printing, is the future need for CNC machinists going to diminish? Should companies invest in training their employees in these new technologies? 

These 2 questions are asked hundreds of times each day in leadership discussions. Finding human talent to utilize and maintain existing and emerging technologies has always been a huge challenge for companies. This challenge isn’t new; it has existed throughout history. What has changed are the skill sets needed.

This session will discuss the combination of formal “baseline” training, on-the-job training, enhancement training (both internally and externally) and future needs assessments.

The educational and informative conferences run Sept. 8-11, 2014 in the West Building, Level 1. To register for this or any session, visit www.imts.com/education/imtsconference.html.
