ON THE JOB & CLASSROOM TRAINING
In week 4, apprentices are placed with manufacturer employer partners and begin paid on the job training at a discounted rate of just $10 per hour. During weeks 4-24 apprentices spend 4 days a week with employers for on the job training and 1 day a week in the classroom to continue manufacturing knowledge and soft / life skills training. Our coaches work and communicate with employers, associates, supervisors and team leaders to ensure all participants complete the tasks, assignments and assessments in conjunction with employer’s day to day business / projects. This allows us to qualify and certify participants accordingly.
Upon successful completion of course work, exams, soft / life skills training and on the job training with employers after 16-24 weeks, pre-apprentices will graduate with certifications that are nationally recognized by the Department of Labor and SCJC. They are now certified with foundational skills and eligible to work as qualified workers in the manufacturing industry.
