- Upgrade current skills and knowledge
- Learn new skills
- Gain industry-recognized technical certifications
- Earn academic credits toward college degrees

The Florida TRADE program is designed to deliver accelerated training that can be completed in 3-6 months (depending on the program) and that lead to internships and jobs in manufacturing.
