P3MAP is a new training program that prepares individuals for high-growth careers in advanced manufacturing. RAMP MD, the Army, and employers are collaborating on launching this unique program that will graduate between 50-100 certified  journeymen and women to the manufacturing sector each year. Participants in the program work onsite at the US Army Product Development Facility at Aberdeen Proving Ground – Edgewood Area, a $250 million advanced manufacturing facility that supports the Army mission and national readiness.

Initially we expect to offer two career pathways – one is a two-year Industrial Manufacturing Technician certification, and the other is a four-year Machinist certification.  The state-approved Standards of Apprenticeship for Industrial Manufacturing Technician can be downloaded here. We will be accepting applications from individuals interested in pursuing a career in manufacturing in coming months.
