What Sets Us Apart

Two Highly Effective Solutions to the Manufacturing Skills Shortage

Hands-On, Performance-Based Skills Assessments – Lower the Risk and Cost of Hiring in Manufacturing

The Skills Assessment Program delivers a Return-On-Investment in excess of 100% the first month of deployment.

Identifying and measuring skills in the hiring process is the single most effective means to solve your manufacturing skills shortage and insure a quality hire. Our clients know the skill level and skill set of all candidates prior to hire. No more leap of faith that a candidate possesses the skills they represent in the interview process.

Many organizations assess their incumbent workforce and deliver highly targeted training based on the assessment data.  This targeted training methodology dramatically increases the ROI of your training dollars spent.

As the skills shortage grows more acute each year and margin pressures mount, it’s more critical than ever to make the right hiring decision. Our validated Skills Assessment Program, using portable Hands-On Assessment Machines and a task-oriented methodology, identifies the most skilled, most capable and most trainable candidates and incumbents. The assessment program has been administered over 1,000,000 times generating savings in excess of $10 billion for our clients.

Demand-Driven Manufacturing Skills Training Programs

Our Competency-Based Mechatronics Training Curriculum is a Hands-On, 100% Demand-Driven Training Program. Troubleshooting Ability is the Focus, the Heart and Soul, of the Program.

We build our training curriculum for industry, collaborating closely with industrial operations professionals. We design each training unit to meet the unique needs of our global manufacturing clients. These operation professionals possess an in-depth understanding of the skills required to optimize performance and profitability. We target training to this skill set.

We teach the theory, then directly apply the theory in a lab setting, using hands-on training aids that replicate real-world conditions in the manufacturing facility.

Training in industry has two primary objectives; 1) deliver highly effective training that will improve performance both immediately and long-term, and 2) deliver the training efficiently in order to get manpower back into production as soon as possible. We build and design our curriculum specifically for this type of environment. Highly effective training delivered in a reasonably short period of time.

The American Council on Education (ACE CREDIT®) recommends college credits for twelve of SMT’s manufacturing skills assessment and training programs.
