Apprentice Registration Underway

Do you know someone who would be a good candidate for the Pittsburgh Chapter NTMA’s apprentice training?  We’re now enrolling apprentices for the 2013-2014 apprenticeship year. The Apprenticeship Program is designed to provide related instruction classes to support on-the-job training provided by employers. The curriculum supports several metalworking occupations such as Machinists, Tool and Die Makers, and CNC Specialists.

This four-year apprenticeship program provides a comprehensive curriculum that keeps pace with current industry standards, taught by instructors with industry experience. Apprentices have the opportunity for hands-on NIMS credentialing to help them in their advancement and understanding of their field. The credentials they earn are standards-based, and recognized nationally.

Classes will be held at three locations:

  • Central Westmoreland CTC in New Stanton
  • Northern Westmoreland CTC in New Kensington
  • New Century Careers Training Innovation Center on Pittsburgh’s Southside.

Tuition for the program is $1,000 for NTMA Members and $1,180 for non-members for the entire year. This covers NIMS registration for each apprentice and up to two credentials per year. The costs of textbooks are additional. The deadline for registration is August 21, 2013.  Classes start the week of September 9.  For more information and an application, click here.
