About AmSkills @ Hernando County UF Extension

The American Manufacturing Skills Initiative, known as AmSkills, is an industry-led economic and workforce development initiative. AmSkills delivers a high-tech, world class, two-year pre-apprenticeship program to Tampa Bay area students and adults seeking advanced manufacturing careers. The first of its kind in the United States, AmSkills works with the German Embassy’s Skills Initiative and in collaboration with education, industry, and government to train the nation’s future manufacturing leaders — according to the business needs of quality product and precision engineering companies. AmSkills stands apart from other apprenticeship programs, with training programs offered by industry-certified instructors, rather than teachers, at goal-centered training centers, rather than company locations.
