Registered Apprenticeship Program Highlighted on CNN

Posted by John Ladd - On May 04, 2010 (EST)

Registered Apprenticeship took center-stage on CNN’s ongoing “Where the Jobs Are” series last week.  This installment of the series, which highlights the experiences of employers and workers during the nation’s economic recovery, focused on a South Carolina-based Bosch Rexroth manufacturing program.  Through the program, apprentices work by night and attend Greenville Technical College (Greenville, SC) by day to gain advanced manufacturing skills.  The piece details the career opportunities Registered Apprenticeship provides and the benefits employers’ reap from training their own for the skills they demand.  The CNN segment also shows the changing face of today’s manufacturing worker, with companies now recruiting highly-skilled employees with advanced aptitude in math, communications and machining. 
Registered Apprenticeship’s ‘Earn While You Learn’ model is on full display as CNN takes a ‘day-in-the-life’ look at the experiences of a restaurant owner turned machinist who is working toward completion of his program.  Please post a comment on this great video as we'd love to hear your reactions and ideas on how to generate more coverage of your Registered Apprenticeship program.
