How Can I Participate With ATDM?

ATDM is a fast-track, intensive, and targeted program for training workers to address critical skills gaps in the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) – more specifically, the Submarine Industrial Base (SIB). Defense manufacturers can engage with ATDM in multiple ways by sending employees to the program for upskilling, sponsoring conditional pre-hires, recruiting students, providing curriculum and training feedback, and participating in workforce connection events.

  • CNC MACHINING
