M.O.S.T is one of the most successful accelerated job training and placement programs funded by the US Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration High Growth Job Training Initiative. It was developed by Time Wise Management Systems and piloted in seven states. Program partners have included economic development organizations, workforce investment boards, employers and community and vocational colleges.
M.O.S.T. trains and places people in entry-level production jobs in a fraction of the time of traditional programs, providing opportunity for growth and higher earning potential. The first week of the basic program provides intensive instruction in basic manufacturing skills including shop math, blueprint or wire diagram reading, metrology, and safety. The second week's instructions is customized to meet the specific needs of the employer and may include units in milling, turning, basic programming, soldering, clean room techniques, hand tool use, Lean to Green processes and other technical skills. The program content is designed to train people for jobs that are available now and provides a career ladder leading to the jobs of the future. Modules are customized to an employer’s specific needs and the skill sets of the trainees.
The program has placed over 300 new hires in advanced manufacturing and green jobs. Some graduates have already been promoted into higher responsibility roles. All trainees are members of underserved and disadvantaged populations who have suffered significantly during the economic downturn. M.O.S.T. travels directly to where jobs are in demand and trainees are available, and bridges the skill gap to create win-win situations with unprecedented efficiency.
There is real, unmet demand for skilled, entry-level production workers. M.O.S.T. can train and place 15,000 new, productive workers in the next eighteen months on a multi-regional basis.
