About This Webinar
This is not your parents’ manufacturing world, so training shouldn't be old-school either. Demands in the digital factory for a New Collar Workforce require innovative programs that are skill-specific and meet the needs of today’s employers.

In this webinar, Sarah Boisvert, the founder of Fab Lab Hub, will report on the feedback she gathered from 200 manufacturers for digital fabrication job skills in manufacturing. Her findings lead directly back to innovative training programs that include digital badges to demonstrate hands-on experience with tools like 3D printers, CAD software, and laser machine tools.
