Are you interested in Upskilling your Employees? Check-out out AWT Apprenticeship Program Webinar

The next cohort will start in February and is a combination of online and in-person instruction. In-person instruction takes place at Auburn Career Center one day a week from 3 pm-5 pm. Our community recognizes the need for skilled manufacturing workers and would like to strengthen our manufacturing workforce through apprenticeship training. The apprenticeship training is a total of 4 years long and at the end of the 4 years, apprentices will receive their Journeyman’s certificate.

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 for the AWT Apprenticeship program is $2,000 per employee per year and through Ohio’s TechCred Program, employers who successfully submit their TechCred application will be reimbursed up to $2,000 per employee after each year of completion in their training. AWT Staff Members will even help your company navigate the TechCred application for training reimbursement.

For more information or to enroll your employee in the AWT Apprenticeship today, contact AWT at
