Hands-On Manufacturing Skill Training Programs

SMT’s Manufacturing Skills Curriculum is 100% Demand Driven, built by and for manufacturing operations professionals. The proven program teaches the theory, then directly applies that theory in a hands-on training lab working with training aids that replicate real-world conditions. The balance of training time is 30% Theory: 70% Hands-On application of theory in the training lab.


The Competency-Based program is highly effective in a short period of time.


Based on skill gap analysis using the Assessment Program SMT delivers “targeted training” for your incumbent workforce. This targeted training increases the ROI of training dollars spent because you only take employees out of production for the specific training required.
