IMOM: Preparing the Next Generation of Workers

The SEDCOR Industrial Maintenance Operator/Mechanic Training Program (IMOM) is an industry-driven skills development program designed to identify and document critical skills of existing employees and transfer the knowledge and expertise to the next generation of workers.


One goal of the IMOM program is to improve skills needed by regional companies for our regional workforce. Top employees from companies in every industry have been interviewed to identify their skills and competencies. This information is used to work on skill development, both within the companies and in public/private partnerships, to provide high school students hirable skills. The information is also being used for hiring purposes, matching IMOM-identified skills with potential employee skill sets.

The information created through IMOM has given SEDCOR unique economic development intelligence. It also offers an advantage in recruitment, because the region is skilling up its workforce for future needs.

In collaboration with food processors, construction and manufacturing companies, equipment is donated for projects at several school districts. The blueprints, projects, and raw materials are also supplied by companies for students to gain hands-on experience and skills.
