MCCC, SEMCA TO HOST SESSION ON THE BENEFITS OF REGISTERED APPRENTICESHIPS

MONROE, Mich. – Monroe County Community College and the Southeast Michigan Community Alliance will host a free session for employers, educators, workforce development officials, elected officials and veterans agency representatives on the benefits of the U.S. Department of Labor’s Registered Apprenticeship System on Nov. 6 from 8:30-11 a.m. in the Career Technology Center on the Main Campus.

MCCC’s Main Campus is located at 1555 S. Raisinville Rd. in Monroe.

The session, titled “Bridge Skill Gaps and Build a Stronger Workforce through Registered Apprenticeship,” will outline benefits of registered apprenticeship and resources available to employers that decide to pursue them within their organizations.

Representatives from the DOL will be on hand to discuss how apprenticeships offer cost-effective strategies for growing businesses.

The Registered Apprenticeship System has been utilized to meet the needs of America’s skilled workforce for more than 75 years.  It is a unique, flexible training system that combines job-related, technical instruction with structured, on-the-job learning experiences. 

It is a leader in preparing American workers to compete in a global 21st century economy because it keeps pace with advancing technologies and innovations in training and human resource development. 

The system is highly active in traditional manufacturing trades, but it is also instrumental in the training and development of other emerging industries.

To RSVP for this free session, please call Cameron Albring at (734) 384-4112 or email her at calbring@monroeccc.edu.
