Swiss Automation is extremely proud to have recently received a certificate from the Department of Labor for our newly “Registered Apprenticeship Program”. While Swiss Automation has had a well-developed apprenticeship program in place for years, this new certification provides national recognition for building a quality training program and a fabulous career pathway for Swiss CNC Operators. We are developing great talent and helping to bridge the manufacturing skills gap in the US.
Registered Apprenticeship Programs (RAPs) are made up of 5 components.
- Business Involvement
- On-the-Job Training
- Related Training Instruction
- Wage increases for skills gained
- Nationally Recognized Credential
Apprentices that participate and graduate from this program will receive a nationally recognized credential awarded by the Department of Labor acknowledging their competency and skill set.
Partnerships with the Technology and Manufacturing Association (TMA) and the Lake County Workforce have made this program possible.
We’ve been sending selected apprentices to the TMA for the additional training and have received grants through Lake County Workforce for the cost of the training.
More than anything, this recognition speaks to the quality Swiss Automation prides itself on. The quality of the parts we manufacture is only as good as the operators that we train. We have achieved the gold standard in training with this apprenticeship!
