1 COLORADO HELPS ADVANCED MANUFACTURING PROGRAM (CHAMP): PATHWAYS TO IN-DEMAND CAREERS IN COLORADO Emily Lesh, Colorado Workforce Development Center Bitsy Cohn, Colorado Community College System

2 Today Introductions Advanced Manufacturing What is it? Why is it important to the country? Why is it important to Colorado? The national employment landscape Skills and expectations The data Critical occupations CHAMP: Building Colorado’s workforce CHAMP Colleges and programs The Interactive Career Map Colorado’s Workforce Centers What can YOU do today?

3 Advanced Manufacturing is defined as… …the method to design and produce. It uses innovative technology, processes and methods to improve the quality of production, products & workforce. MAKING THINGS COOL IN DENVER

4 Manufacturing Matters To The US 12 million + jobs in the U.S. 2/3 of all private sector R&D Employs over 60% all domestic scientists and engineers Attracts the most FDI than any other country 65% of all U.S. trade Premium wages and strong multiplier effect Major support sector for Colorado’s other economic drivers: healthcare, defense, energy, construction, business services

5 Manufacturing Matters To Colorado The average annually salary: $60,000 25% higher than the average for all other industries combined. Represents about 6% of all jobs More than 120,000 manufacturing employees. 4th largest private industry in terms of output, making it arguably the largest “traded cluster” in the state. Colorado was one of 11 sates to grow its exports in double in digit percentages from 2011 to 2012—up to a record $8.2 billion from $7.3 billion.
