Submarine Shipbuilding Workforce Development Resources

The Southeastern New England Defense Industry Alliance (SENEDIA)  has been awarded a Department of Defense $18.6 million contract to develop a robust regional workforce development partnership that will serve the needs of the submarine shipbuilding sector employers and open up job exploration and employment opportunities to more than 5,000 potential workers.

Southeastern New England is the hub for innovation in submarine shipbuilding.  The best-in-class workforce development initiatives forged now will power this high-demand, high-skill sector for the next 30 years.

SENEDIA is soliciting input from regional manufacturers to a SURVEY to better understand workforce gaps so that training programs can be tailored to the needs of industry, focused on General Dynamics Electric Boat, the nation’s prime submarine builder, and its Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island supply chain. Results from this survey, and subsequent collaboration with employers, will be used to develop hands-on training opportunities.


SENEDIA has also developed a  Sub Shipbuilding Compendium January 2021 identifying Workforce Development programs for the Submarine Shipbuilding sector.
