Manufacturing Alliance Apprenticeship Program
The New York State Manufacturers Alliance – of which the Council of Industry is a founding member – has been successful in obtaining funds in the State budget for the creation of a New York State Manufacturers Alliance Apprenticeship Program (NYSMAAP). Administered in the Hudson Valley by the Council of Industry, NYSMAAP will be an employer-led public-private pilot program for registered apprentices in manufacturing occupations.
This apprenticeship has two basic elements. The first, On-the-Job Training (OJT), consists of a journey-level, craft person that is capable and willing to share their experience with an apprentice, in a hands-on manner. The second, Related Instruction (RI), consists of learning more theoretical or knowledge-based aspects of a craft.
This registered apprentice program will typically be three to four years in duration.
NYSMAA Registered Trades:
- Machinist (CNC)
- Electro-Mechanical Technician
- Electronics Technician
- Maintenance Mechanic (Automatic Equipment)
- Quality Assurance Auditor
