The Alliance for Working Together (AWT) Foundation would like to announce the beginning of the AWT Apprenticeship Program, which is a collaborative effort of the AWT Foundation, Lakeland Community College, Mentor Public Schools, Lake Shore Compact, and Auburn Career Center.
Our community recognizes the need for skilled manufacturing workers and would like to strengthen our manufacturing workforce through apprenticeship training.
The AWT apprenticeship offers a reliable pipeline of skilled workers, customized training that meets industry standards, and increased knowledge transfer through on-the-job learning. AWT offers four different apprenticeship occupations including precision machinist, tool programmer/numerical control, tool & die maker, and mold maker. The cost of enrollment in the AWT Apprenticeship program is $2,000 per employee per year and through the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation’s TechCred Program, employers who submit successful TechCred applications will be reimbursed up to $2,000 per credential when current or prospective employees complete their training. AWT Staff Members will even help your company navigate the TechCred application for training reimbursement.
