Industry needs a prepared workforce, and MCC is pleased to work with companies in its service area to meet that need.
MCC offers many ways to connect to apprentices. Students cannot become an apprentice until they are hired by a company, but we have events like speed interviews, career fairs, and open houses where industry partners are welcome to meet potential hires.
Companies like Ford and (other companies) sponsor their own apprenticeship programs, but still have a close relationship with MCC as the provider of the coursework for their apprentices.
For companies that do not have the resources to sponsor their own apprentices, MCC can provide that service, bridging the Department of Labor and its reporting requirements with the specific needs and details of an employer’s context. MCC adds the personal touch. We can customize the classes and on the job training a company’s apprenticeship requires, so the worker is prepared to meet your needs. We visit sites and deliver textbooks right to your offices. We provide training for clients in how to mentor apprentices. Our responsive staff is ready to make your apprenticeship program a positive experience for everyone involved.
