What Makes the AMT Program Different?

Over two years, students can earn as much as $33,500, which with planning can cover all of a student’s education expenses. There are also potential grants and financial aid.

While not guaranteed, there will be opportunities for the sponsor company to hire graduates as full time employees. Graduates of the AMT program will be equipped with the needed skills and experience that many manufacturing companies are actively seeking.

Enter the Workforce as an In-Demand, Skilled Technician

The River Region Federation For Advanced Manufacturing Education (F.A.M.E.) program partners students with industry while they take classes at select community colleges.

The goal is for students to gain valuable employment experience with manufacturing leaders while also completing their associate degree.


Do I get to choose my sponsor company?

Companies select students on a draft system. You have the right to refuse an offer, but there is no guarantee another company will select you.

Will I be hired immediately at my sponsor company?

Maybe. There is no obligation for the sponsor company to hire you, nor are you obligated to stay after graduation. Several factors are considered in this situation.

I’ve never worked in manufacturing. How do I know if this is the right program for me?

It’s okay if you don’t have any real-world manufacturing experience. Do you like working with your hands? Does the sound of sitting at a desk all day long bore you? Do you have a reputation for being able to take things apart and put them back together? Do you ask “Why?” when something doesn’t work? If so, this program is likely for you!
