Training, Certification, and Workforce Development

Both the public and private sectors have a demand for maintaining a skilled workforce. The national center is committed to developing and delivering, either independently or in partnership with existing industry associations, a full complement of workshops and courses to meet the demand for worker training and certification.

As a result of our strategic partnership with the DoD, UA has been selected as its lead developer and integrator for a series of new corrosion-related courses for the Defense Acquisition University. Although these courses are being designed to incorporate specific DoD case studies, it is important to note that they will be available to industry and the public and will provide a sound introduction to engineering principles.

Furthermore, where a company has an interest in customized training for its workers, they will be able to contract with the national center to modify the content of these modules to incorporate content that is specific to their industry or company.
