Mark Tansey, of Bensalem, graduated from the Accelerated Training in Defense Manufacturing in February with a credential in CNC Machining. Tansey plans to use these skills at Kingsbury Inc.

More than 90 percent of students from the February cohort have secured jobs or are returning to their employer with additional credentials. 

“Every graduating class represents progress towards the Navy’s goal to have 100,000 workers in the submarine industrial base over the next 10 years,” said Dr. Debra Holley, ATDM director. “This cohort of students earned more than 400 certifications in high-demand fields needed in the defense industry. We are proud of all that these students have accomplished and the contributions they will make to the national workforce, as well as the nation’s security.”

Accelerated Training in Defense Manufacturing was created to teach the skills needed for increasing military equipment production in the United States. Students at ATDM are trained in the skills needed to repair, upfit and build submarines, and these skills are transferable to other defense industry companies. Students earn the skills for great-paying, in-demand defense industry jobs in these skilled trades: Additive Manufacturing, CNC Machining, Non-destructive Testing, Quality Control Inspection (also known as Metrology) and Welding.
