On June 2 at 2:00 PM (EST) Ryan Hundt of the Michigan Economic Development Corporation and Tom Ruczynski of Proper Group are teaming up to present to you the Michigan Advanced Technician Training program (MAT²®), which is an innovative and industry-defined approach to education.

MAT²’s educational model was developed in conjunction with global technology leaders that combines theory, practice and work to train a globally competitive workforce by: allowing companies to "grow their own" employees and ensure a future pipeline of qualified talent; directly involving employers in the development and execution of a hands-on, competency-based education and training program, creating highly skilled, capable, and readily employable graduates; offering an economically feasible option to training, ultimately reducing recruitment, retention and training costs; establishing Michigan as an education innovator and global competitor; and, creating a nationally accredited program, in which students receive an associate degree, along with other accreditations where applicable.
