HUDSON — Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute and FleetGenius, LLC recently announced the latest group of students to sign a formal apprenticeship agreement with the local employer. Students and officials from both CCC&TI and Fleet Genius were on hand for a special signing ceremony on Thursday, Oct. 5, on the college’s Caldwell Campus in Hudson.
CCC&TI students Anna DeBeve, Jacob Helton, Carter Hinton and Caldwell Applied Science Academy alumna Rebekah Wood all signed agreements and will begin on-the-job training at FleetGenius in the coming weeks. DeBeve and Hinton will work as apprentice welders; Wood will serve as apprentice maintenance; and Helton will serve as apprentice service technician.
CCC&TI’s Apprenticeship Program is an employer-based program that helps workers learn specialized skills needed in today’s work environment, combining on-the-job learning with related classroom instruction. Students earn nationally recognized credentials, while employers develop a talented team and close the skills gap. While many people start apprenticeships immediately after graduating from high school, an apprenticeship program may also work well for veterans leaving active-duty military service, those looking to change careers, or people whose jobs are being replaced by technology. CCC&TI’s goal is to help connect and support employers and apprentices. To read the full article click here.
