Finding qualified workers for the U.S. labor market is one of the largest industry issues that exists today.
A qualified candidate requires not only the proper skills but also the professional ethic, maturity and discipline to get the work done. Military veterans already possess these ideal qualities and their skills acquired during their time of service can be easily applied to the work site. As a result, the SMART Heroes program was innovated to capitalize upon these professional qualities by helping U.S. military men and women transition into the civilian workforce. Launched in August 2017, the SMART Heroes program provides free sheet metal industry training to for active-duty U.S. military men and women and recent veterans who plan to enter civilian life within the year, thereby assisting with their successful transition to the civilian workforce!
