What is JumpStartAL?

JumpStartAL is a virtual reality-based workforce development initiative created through a public-private partnership to develop the next generation of skilled labor by using innovative technology solutions. The initiative is part of Alabama’s goal to add 500,000 highly skilled workers by 2025 to meet workforce needs. JumpStartAL will provide a virtual reality education and training system to a broad range of audiences to successfully meet the state’s current and future need for skilled labor. The accelerated program will focus on training retention, innovation and career awareness. Virtual reality training allows educators to meet students where they are, providing hands-on experience and benefits, such as a higher retention rate, lower training costs and decreased risk of injury or damage to equipment.
