Across Colorado, manufacturing employers forecast an on-going need not only for workers who are interested in career opportunities but who are prepared to enter the advanced manufacturing industry with the necessary high-tech skills. Additionally, employers report concerns about replacing retiring workers that take with them decades of intellectual talent. Addressing workforce development in Colorado, particularly in the industrial and manufacturing sectors, Pueblo Community College (PCC) developed a strategy to increase capacity for delivering high quality hands-on instruction remotely by implementing industrial-grade Mobile Learning Labs. Skilled instructors utilize the labs to deliver training in Electrical, Mechanical, Manufacturing and Welding Systems. PCC offers many insights about successful strategies and critical "lessons learned" throughout each phase of the project. (Contains 2 figures.)
