NIMS Hosts Third in a Series of Apprenticeship Accelerator Development Workshops in Manufacturing

A registered apprenticeship is a proven work-and-learn model for preparing future leaders in manufacturing. On February 23rd, NIMS hosted an Apprenticeship Accelerator Development Workshop at NIMS headquarters in Fairfax, Virginia. The workshop was the third in a series of accelerator development workshops held by NIMS. Over the course of a day employers, community colleges, workforce development agencies, chambers of commerce and industry associations from across the nation learned how to develop, implement, and register an apprenticeship program. The workshop included interactive sessions to support attendees in kick-starting the registration of their apprenticeship programs.

Members of the Department of Labor – Employment and Training Administration provided their insight on the DOL program registration process, including an overview of the DOL Standards Builder by Regional Director Dean Guido. Dr. Ricky C. Godbolt, shared a comprehensive review of the Department’s nearly $90 million investment in expanding apprenticeship.
