The Kansas Advanced Manufacturing Program (KAMP), funded from the America’s Promise Grant, is a tuition free skills training and work–based learning opportunities, which can include on-the-job training to prepare participants for careers in the aviation and advanced manufacturing industries. All training will be employer driven and tied to employment opportunities in South Central Kansas. KAMP is designed to move low-wage and underemployed workers to high-paying manufacturing careers.
KAMP partners include: Workforce Alliance of South Central Kansas, Spirit AeroSystems, Wichita Area Technical College (WATC), Wichita State University, Hutchinson Community College, The Greater Wichita Partnership, Textron Aviation, XLT Ovens, JR Custom Metals, Flint Hill Industries, the Lowen Corporation, the Bradbury Group, the Kansas Department of Commerce and Kansas WorkforceOne. The KAMP grant will be administered throughout Butler, Cowley, Harper, Harvey, Kingman, Marion, McPherson, Reno, Sedgwick and Sumner Counties.
The KAMP grant will begin providing training opportunities in 2017. Applications will be available as soon as training programs have been identified by participating employers.

Once KAMP applications are being accepted, opportunities will be communicated via this webpage and on workforce center e-distribution lists and social media accounts.
