Upgrading Industrial Workers' Technical Skills
Additional partners: National Association of Manufacturers (U.S.), Partners of the Americas.
Community Colleges of Colorado and the National Confederation of Industry in Brazil partnered to upgrade the technical skills of Brazilian industrial workers by providing access and orientation to new technologies and processes.
The partners established strong links with the Federation of Industries for the State of Minas Gerias (FEIMG), the U.S. Department of Education’s Community College Liaison Office, and the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade. They also linked FEIMG with the National Association of Manufacturers, the largest multi-industry trade association in the United States.
