Statewide Manufacturing Apprenticeships

Create a statewide manufacturing apprenticeship program that is easily accessible (i.e., less paperwork for business to participate, not as complex) and includes SMEs. Encourage businesses to make ongoing investments in the training and retraining of workers. (i.e., Charlotte-based “Apprenticeship 2000;” Manufacturing Institute’s Endorsed Skills Certification system; expense sharing for apprenticeship programs).
