The Indiana Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education
An employer-driven initiative of the Indiana Manufacturers Association
The Indiana Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education (INFAME) is a partnership of regional manufacturers whose purpose is to implement career pathway, apprenticeship-style educational programs that will create a pipeline of highly skilled workers.
The Indiana Manufacturers Association’s initiative INFAME is driven to assist manufacturers throughout Indiana in developing their own personalized programs to ensure a pipeline of well-qualified and educated workers for the next generation. Realizing that each company and region in Indiana is unique and has its own special needs, we have gathered the best of the best in programs. We will show you how to implement the program and partner with local schools, trade schools, and colleges. INFAME is your one-stop resource for building your future workforce from the ground up.
Transforming Indiana’s manufacturing workforce to ensure the economic success of the manufacturing industry.
INFAME will work closely with educational institutions to establish and endorse programs and curricula that develop the skill-sets students need for Indiana’s manufacturing jobs.
