SAME Young Professionals Webinar: Sustaining Space Industry Growth with an Effective Workforce Development Program

About This Webinar

The space industry, both commercial and government, is rapidly growing and will become a trillion-dollar industry by 2040. Traditional academic models, while necessary, can’t bridge the gap fast enough between the specific and diverse degrees offered by colleges and universities and the professional skills and standardized knowledge required to sustain the rapid growth of the space ecosystem. This competitive ecosystem will require a diverse workforce from the many professional disciplines stemming from both technical schools and traditional 4-year universities. Individuals and organizations must embrace skills-based professional development programs to remain competitive in the space economy, especially as space-experienced human talent becomes more and more scarce. However, not all space training and education programs have the ability to both effectively and efficiently train, in large numbers, the space workforce of the future. An individual that wishes to make themselves more competitive in the space industry or wishes to break into the industry from another industry has choices. The same applies to organizations that understand the return on investment of sound professional development programs. The question is, which workforce development model is the most effective and efficient?
