ARPM creates digital training modules for rubber manufacturers

  1/11/2019 - Indianapolis, IN – The Association for Rubber Products Manufacturers announced a partnership with 180 Skills to deliver skills training for rubber manufacturers. Starting in the summer of 2018, ARPM and 180 Skills worked to create customized digital modules designed to train rubber processors, the first of its kind in the industry. Users who sign up with the new program will also gain access to 180 Skills’ entire library of over 700 online, competency based courses. This library covers everything from baseline to advanced manufacturing content, all in a very engaging format promoting mastery in each skill set. “Our single biggest crisis in this industry is workforce development. We must find better ways to build, grow and retain our workforce. Gone are the days candidates would line up at human resources departments to fill open positions. The partnership with 180 Skills puts all ARPM members on a great path forward in 2019,” says Letha Keslar, ARPM managing director. The new training program is open to all ARPM members at a significant discount until March 31.
