We are thrilled to announce that we got awarded with the PAsmart job training grant for our Pre-Apprenticeship program! The program gives Senior students in High School the opportunity to get some hands on work experience at state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities while earning the industry-recognized MT1 certification (Manufacturing Technician Level 1), which accelerates them in our ensuing Apprenticeship program.
"A $40,000 pre-apprenticeship grant was awarded, in partnership with the German American Chamber of Commerce (GACC) Pittsburgh Chapter Dual Pre-Apprenticeship Program, to enable high school seniors to complete high school while taking theoretical skill classes and earning a manufacturing technician 1 certification. Students will complete on-site training at their sponsor company and earn six college credits for completing classes that integrate seamlessly with high school classes."
