Session Topic: Competency Management and Performance Improvement for the Next Generation

The resurgence of manufacturing in the United States has created an increased demand for new learning resources and programs for on-boarding and retraining skilled workers. An increased need for more skilled technicians is driving many businesses to evaluate current knowledge management and training processes to meet tomorrow’s challenges sooner.

Attend this presentation to hear from training experts, Richard McNamara and Dr. Irving A.
