Apprenticeship Program

​First in the State of Florida, a dynamic, fast-track comprehensive manufacturing apprenticeship program*, sponsored by TCMA and funded by CareerSource Research Coast through a Sector Strategies Grant from CareerSource Florida, this premiere program will enroll up to 30 men and women in an 18-month “earn-while you-learn” apprenticeship program. 


Apprentices will be selected by the TCMA Apprenticeship Committee. Once approved, apprentices begin their on-the-job learning immediately through employment with local manufacturers. Evening classes will start this summer (2018) at the Indian River State College’s Corporate and Community Training Institute (CCTI).

Upon completion apprentices will earn a national, industry-recognized credential, the Industrial Manufacturing Technician (IMT) and the Manufacturers Skills Standards Council (MSSC) Certified Production Technician (CPT) certification.  After graduating from the program, the apprentice will know how to set up, operate, monitor and control production equipment, improve manufacturing processes, and understand the business of manufacturing.
