AMPED

Raising the standard

It may stand for “Advanced Manufacturing Practices and Educational Development,” but as an acronym it stands for what the NTMA wishes to do in terms of training and performance: make them AMPED.

AMPED is a two-fold program. It consists of training and certification for regional training sites, coupled with an online Wikipedia-style dynamic database of standards, best practices and benchmarks available to participants. These standards cover recruitment, training, placement/retention, funding and more. Our vision is for the AMPED wiki to be a one-stop resource for all of the non-proprietary knowledge developed by NTMA members over the years.

Participation is self-directed. Sites desiring to become regional Centers of Excellence under the AMPED program pay a nominal fee for a CD and introductory materials, then form a committee to determine training needs and develop a site plan. The information in the wiki will provide all the necessary information going forward.
