The Central Ohio Manufacturing Partnership (COMP) is participating in the Ohio Manufacturers’ Association (OMA) Good Jobs Challenge. This project is designed to help manufacturers solve their workforce challenges through recruiting, training, upskilling, and placing individuals in quality manufacturing jobs. Using local partners to better engage a diverse population’s interest in manufacturing, COMP will implement an entry-level learn and earn program with a strong career pathway (WorkAdvance).
Through this grant opportunity, COMP Members have a pipeline of qualified candidates and the ability to upskill incumbent workers, both without any cost. Likewise, Ohioans do not incur any costs associated with the training they participate in; giving them access to better career options and better lives.
