Free Solid Edge or NX training through Workforce One and Ally PLM

Workforce One is a program through the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services which links job seekers and employers by providing unique training opportunities in the engineering and design sector through the Workforce Investment Act. These programs teach high-level skills to prepare the unemployed workforce for specialized careers in technology. Ally PLM Solutions has partnered with Workforce One and Ohio WIA One Stop Centers to provide several options registered applicants can take advantage of at no cost to the applicant.

Ally PLM Solutions offers two programs through Workforce One:

Both courses will teach students basic CAD drafting and design; a vital skill for engineers, manufacturers, and other design technology technicians. Major companies use Solid Edge and NX CAD software in their everyday functions in the automotive, aerospace and defense, medical devices, electronics, and many other industries. Competency in either of these programs is a specialized skill and a very attractive attribute to employers in the fastest growing job sectors.

There are a few simple steps to take to enroll in this program:

Step 1: Attend an orientation at your county’s Workforce Investment Act Ohio One Stop Center. Click here to find your county’s location. Orientations are every Wednesday at 2:30 PM. Attendees don’t need to bring anything to this meeting. The purpose is to educate about WIA’s services and how they can be effectively utilized. This is where applications for WIA’s services can be obtained.

Step 2: Complete and submit your application to your county’s WIA One Stop Center. Usually your application will be processed within a few hours of submission, so the sooner you submit, the sooner you can realize the benefits of WIA’s services; including free training from Ally PLM Solutions.

Step 3: Choose Solid Edge or NX training from Ally PLM Solutions. You will work with a representative from the WIA One Stop Center who will help you enroll in either Solid Edge or NX training at no cost to you.

Step 4: Contact the WIA One Stop Center to give employment updates. Following your free training, your WIA One Stop Center will request that you contact them once a quarter for one year to update them on your employment status. In these brief conversations a WIA representative will offer further assistance in helping you achieve your career goals.

Receiving the benefits of the WIA and Workforce One is extremely easy and renders huge benefits. Solid Edge and NX training courses are only 5 days long and can be taken at Ally PLM’s corporate office in Cincinnati, Ohio, or even online. Students will be led by an engineer with extensive industry experience and will learn all the capabilities and an overall concrete understanding of Solid Edge or NX software.

The skills you will gain from Ally PLM Solutions are highly specialized and are sought out by employers every single day. Individuals who receive unemployment, food stamps, or cash assistance benefits or have received them in the past 6 months are automatically eligible. To find out if you are eligible for WIA’s services, attend an orientation at your county’s One Stop center Wednesday’s at 2:30 PM. For more information, visit Ohio's WIA website.
