Top reasons why your company needs to develop an apprentice program

The Boston Business Journal interviewed TMA Board member Tom Hacker for this article on the revival of apprenticeship programs and why your company needs one –

Thomas Hacker is the president of C&L Supreme, a Midwest manufacturer of precision CNC-machined (also known as computer numerical control) components and assemblies. His company has had an apprenticeship program for about six years in partnership with the local Technology & Manufacturing Association.

“We’re a small business,” he says. “We don’t have the depth or personnel bandwidth to supply a classroom and other resources.” Through the TMA, however, the program has a hands-on training facility, trainers and a curriculum. Ultimately, the program provides credentialing for participants that meets National Institute for Metalworking Skills standards.
