Industrial Manufacturing Technician and Mechatronics

What is an Apprenticeship Program?

  • An employer-driven model that combines on-the-job training with job related classroom instruction
  • Workers learn practical and theoretical aspects of a highly skilled occupation – a proven approach to prepare workers for careers while meeting employers’ need for a highly-skilled workforce
  • Apprentice’s skill level and wages  progressively increase
  • Apprentices receive a national, portable credential

Why Should a Company Partner with an Apprenticeship Program Sponsor?

  • Are experienced employees aging out of the workforce?
  • Is it challenging to attract new talent to entry-level jobs?
  • Do you need a pipeline that enables entry-level workers to prepare for hard-to-fill highly skilled jobs?
  • Are new grads long on theory but short on applied skills?
  • Striving for a workforce that can keep pace with changes in the industry?
  • If you answer yes to any of these questions, then an apprenticeship program may be a good for for your company!
