Industrial Manufacturing Technician and Mechatronics
Today, young workers can struggle to attain the education and work experience they need to land a good job with a career pathway. Many experienced frontline workers are shut off from career opportunities because they do not have the training or credentials required to advance to more specialized, technical occupations.
Manufacturing employers report facing skills shortages. Employers need a pipeline of skilled workers, customized skills training for workers, increased retention, increased productivity, and a positive return on their investments.
The Community College of Allegheny County has formed a PA-state approved Industrial
Manufacturing Technician (IMT) Apprenticeship Program. This earn-as-you-learn course
is a blended learning program that includes classroom time, on-line learning modules
and on-the-job training assignments for a total learning experience of 3,000 hours
(264 in coursework and 2,736 hours on-the-job training) generally scheduled over an
18 month period.
CCAC IMT Apprenticeship Program: a pathway to grow a competitive business by developing skilled and committed workers while building a culture of learning, safety, and quality throughout your workplace.
