Minnesota Dual-Training Pipeline is excited to add transportation as a new dual-training industry in 2023.
The transportation and material moving industry in Minnesota employs over 227,000 individuals and is poised for significant job growth over the next 10 years. According to the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development, the number of employment opportunities in this sector in 2030 is expected to reach around 297,000 openings.
To fully harness the potential job growth in the transportation industry, it will be crucial for Minnesota to invest in education and training programs that will equip individuals with the necessary skills for these evolving roles.
Our team is here to help businesses with transportation workforce needs. We look forward to working with employers to help identify the occupations needed in this industry and to help us develop competency models for training. If you are interested in helping our team add new occupations and create earn-and-learn dual training in transportation, contact us at Pipeline.Program@state.mn.us.
