043. Military to Manufacturing - Academy of Advanced Manufacturing
We love our military heroes and this episode we talk with Mary Burgoon about a program that directly impacts many that serve our great country. The Academy of Advanced Manufacturing was designed to help those that want to make a transition from military to industry when their service is complete. Thru this conversation you'll hear how Rockwell Automation is helping by designing a program that tackles some of the latest technology as well as commercial skills that we all need to effectively work on an industrial team. Talk about a home run for everyone!
Mary reviews how the program created a curriculum that covers both classroom and lab settings that let students learn via multiple channels. Commercial items are addressed as well with areas such as personal coaches who assist with skills like resume writing, interviewing, conflict resolution and effective communication.
You'll hear Mary's passion for serving others and how she sees the impact this program is making on so many people. As part of this series tune in to hear from graduates on how the program impacted them directly and how we now have a new set of industry heroes because of AAM.
