Join us as NYS Manufacturing NOW host Steve Melito explores the world of apprenticeship programs with our guest, Franca Armstrong, the Executive Director of Apprenticeship Programs at Mohawk Valley Community College. Franca provides a detailed rundown of the SUNY Apprenticeship Program, which offers up to $5,000 for related instruction at any SUNY school. They cover the benefits that manufacturers receive from this program, which surprisingly doesn’t cater to construction trades but instead focuses on industries like manufacturing and culinary. Franca also offers a step-by-step guide on how manufacturers can get involved in apprenticeship programs and highlights the perks of pre-apprenticeship programs, which offer up to $1,000 per person.
