Fisher/Unitech announced an investment into its local markets that will provide displaced designers and engineers professional development via a comprehensive community service program entitled "No Engineer Left Behind."

The program offers candidates the opportunity to gain industry skills via a three-step process: attend a three-day Introduction to SolidWorks course, receive an evaluation copy of SolidWorks 2009 Office Professional 3D CAD software for skill enhancement and potentially be placed at a Fisher/Unitech customer site for an unpaid 30-day internship. The company estimates its investment in the program to be more than US$250,000 of in-kind value.

No Engineer Left Behind is a free service available to displaced workers in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois, Wisconsin, Missouri, and Kansas. Candidates must be unemployed due to downsizing as a result of the economy. Upon completion of the course, the candidate will receive SolidWorks software that they may use for one month. Their contact information will then be provided to existing Fisher/Unitech customers who have previously agreed to participate in this unique program. Online registration is available on the company’s website www.funtech.com/s.nl/sc.8/category.2476/ctype.SS/SS.2476/.f.
