Before the pandemic hit, the nation’s manufacturing sector — including the refining and petrochemical industries — was wrestling with how to find and train enough young people to replace the wave of Baby Boomers retiring from the workforce at a rate of nearly 6,000 per day.
Teachers tasked with preparing the next generation of petrochemical and refinery workers are becoming the students.
AFPM exists to serve its members and to act as the voice of the fuel and petrochemical industries in Washington and across the United States.
The beginning of fall once again marks the start of another school year filled with endless possibilities for wide-eyed students eager to learn.
