TROY, MI-Fisher/Unitech, a product lifecycle management solutions provider, has announced an extension of its No Engineer Left Behind retraining program. This professional development program, launched in January 2009, is aimed at helping displaced engineers and designers re-enter the marketplace with a more competitive posture.

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.
