Smart Manufacturing and Advanced Robotics Training (SMART)
The SMART project works with industry to create micro-certifications designed to foreground industry recognized knowledge, skills, and attributes. The goal of this pre-apprenticeship program is to develop a pipeline of industry certified workers ready to enter internships, apprenticeship programs, certificate and associate degree programs, and in some cases begin employment.
Industry Driven Assessments
The project works with industry partners to gather data, develop assessments, and review and update pre-apprenticeship training materials, classroom curricula, and competition activities.
This project is a partnership between FIRST Robotics, Carnegie Mellon University, and Industry partners.
Participants in the project have the opportunity to earn micro-certifications that lead to industry-recognized certifications.
Level II Certification
SMART works with Community College partners to develop next-generation ARM training materials.
