As the recipient of a $4 million CareerAdvance USA Grant, County College of Morris (CCM) and its partner schools are offering training and apprenticeship programs for those looking to build rewarding and well-paying careers in the high-demand field of advanced manufacturing.
As a CCM CareerAdvance apprentice, you will gain skills in a condensed timeframe, while being paid, to obtain a job in advanced manufacturing. You also will have the opportunity to gain college credit during your participation if you would like to continue and pursue a certificate or college degree.
Apprenticeships are available to those with little to no knowledge of advanced manufacturing, along with those with a basic knowledge of the filed. Interested participants can take part in one or both of the following:
- Pre-Apprenticeship Boot Camps: These are four to six weeks long, totaling about 24 hours a week. The boot camps are for those who need to be trained in the basics of machine learning. There is a small fee to take part in the Boot Camps.
- Registered Apprenticeship Programs: Apprentices are hired by a company to take part in on-the-job training, while receiving related technical instruction, for about one year. During an apprenticeship, participants are trained at the company as well as on CCMâ€™s campus. This allows companies to hire suitable apprentices permanently after the apprenticeship is over.
Apprenticeships are also available to companies that want to provide current employees with additional training and an opportunity for advancement.
