TUESDAY AUGUST 24, 2010
For this show, we'll focus on a number of the issues being tracked by members and supporters of the Marine Industry Training & Education Council (MITEC) . What is the state of our available workforce? How will we find, recruit, and retain new workers as the economy starts to grow again? What changes can we expect to see in our workforce? And how can we as an industry, and as individual schools and companies, find the funding we need to train our workers in the skill sets they will need to become boat builders, repairers, and technicians.
We encourage you to send us your questions in advance. Please email them to [email protected] or click here to list them on the web page for this show.
(Note: This episode will be hosted by Ann Avary from the Center of Excellence for Marine Manufacturing & Technology at Skagit Valley College in Oak Harbor, Washington.)
