The American Center for Mobility (ACM) and the University of Michigan (U-M) announce the release of Understanding the Middle-Skills Workforce in the Connected and Automated Vehicle Sector report. This report addresses the growing need to understand middle-skill jobs, such as technicians, in the connected and autonomous vehicle (CAV) sector. The research, performed by the University of Michigan Economic Growth Institute, features qualitative insights from leaders in the CAV industry on the skills needed by workers at the certification and associate degree level. 

“American Center for Mobility sought data on middle-skills jobs in CAV test and infrastructure to support the development of programs and activities that leverage hands-on experiences at the ACM test center, and to ultimately inform and support growth in the mobility workforce. The implications and solutions range from K12 to higher education and will inform additional skills development for professionals,” says ACM Director of Strategy, Marketing & Programming, Dawn Thompson.
