As Pennsylvania marks National Apprenticeship Week, the commonwealth’s deputy secretary for workforce development announced mechatronics technician and CNC operator apprenticeships during a visit to Penn College on Friday. “The Wolf administration supports the growth and expansion of apprenticeship programs as a viable way to develop a pool of high-skilled, qualified talent for employers,” Eileen Cipriani said at an afternoon gathering in the college’s Center for Business & Workforce Development. “Creating new apprenticeship programs … not only helps meet regional employment needs, but provides job seekers with valuable hands-on training that leads to family-sustaining jobs.” Watch PCToday for more on the new apprenticeships.
