No Engineer Left Behind offers candidates the opportunity to gain industry skills via a three-step process: attend a three-day Introduction to SolidWorks course, receive an evaluation copy of SolidWorks 2009 Office Premium 3-D CAD software for skill enhancement and potentially be placed at a Fisher/Unitech customer site for an unpaid 30-day internship.
To date more than 120 unemployed engineers have taken advantage of this program, with one graduate finding permanent placement as a result of the internship component.
In Indiana Fisher/Unitech provides more than 25 training courses that are paid for by the state through the Workforce Investment Act (WIA.) Job seekers who qualify for training through WIA receive a voucher that can be redeemed at Fisher/Unitech to obtain SolidWorks, Simulation and Enterprise PDM training for their occupational skill.
No Engineer Left Behind is a free service available to displaced workers in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois, Wisconsin, Missouri and Kansas. Online registration is available Here.
