FANUC Robotics Integrator Remtec Automation Supports Soldier for Life Initiative at Fort Sill

Remtec Automation will attend the one-year anniversary of The Soldier for Life program at Fort Sill, Oklahoma in support of the FANUC CNC Certification program that facilitates successful reintegration of soldiers into civilian careers in advanced manufacturing technology.

Remtec Automation, LLC, a leader in flexible robotic automation, today announced its support of the new FANUC Robotics Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Certification training offered at the U.S. Army's Soldier for Life Program in Fort Sill, Okla. Remtec CEO, Lisa McMican Ryle will attend the 1st year celebration of the U.S. Army's new Industrial Training Complex (ITC) where active duty military personnel are given the opportunity to receive accelerated training for seamless transition into well-paying civilian careers.

"Remtec is always in the market for hiring well-trained, skilled FANUC CNC operators and programmers. The dedicated men and women who have selflessly served our country certainly deserve the opportunity to transition into good, full-time jobs when they return home. Our company is excited to support the new FANUC Certification program and will be actively recruiting graduating veterans," said Ryle.
Remtec Automation is an established, certified robotics system integrator for FANUC America with a 35-year history in providing manufacturers with turn-key robotic automation solutions. The company is on the leading edge of integrating the latest robotic, vision and controls platforms to meet the industry's growing need to automate manufacturing processes.
The FANUC Robotics CNC Certification will be offered to qualified soldiers at no-charge through an agreement between the United States Garrison, Fort Sill, and Choice Career College (CCC), a FANUC Certified Education CNC school. Once the soldiers are certified, CCC partners with select FANUC integrators such as Remtec Automation to place the retiring military veterans in well-paying careers.
With the shortage of skilled workers due to the manufacturing industry's aging workforce, the need to train future technicians is paramount. This is a win-win for all involved. Businesses benefit by easily hiring veterans trained in the skills they require with proven skill sets. Soldiers transition to civilian life in well-paying, challenging careers. The military gains by lowering potential unemployment expenses, enhancing recruitment initiatives, and most importantly, positively impacting the lives of its veterans and their families.
The U.S. Army established Soldier for Life in July 2012 to provide support during and after service. This initiative is designed to enable soldiers, retired soldiers, veterans and their families to leave military service "career ready", and connect to an established network to find employment, education and health resources.
