The Industry 4.0 Academy program is an initiative to assist transitioning Military Service Members into cutting-edge robotics and manufacturing jobs. Starting with the existing skills Service Members gained while in service, we provide supplemental training as necessary to meet industry requirements. We then connect pre-trained Service Members with our industry partners who are hiring. We are a national consortium of partners and experts in Industry 4.0, piloting in Dallas, Texas with the educational partner Dallas College and the DoD SkillBridge program. This pilot program is funded with a grant from the Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing (ARM) Institute.
The U.S. Department of Defense SkillBridge program is an opportunity for Service Members to gain valuable civilian work experience through specific industry training, apprenticeships, or internships during the last 180 days of service. SkillBridge connects Service members with industry partners in real-world job experiences.
