Prospective employees can sign up for free, paid training
Prospective employees can sign up to take part in the manufacturing apprenticeship program at www.aactjobs.com. As part of the New York State Manufacturing Intermediary Apprenticeship Program, training will cover the majority of the 4-year required related technical instruction hours for several advanced manufacturing positions including CNC Machinist, Machinist, Tool Maker and Maintenance Mechanic. There are ten training positions open and there is no fee to participate. During the nine weeks of training, students will be paid $10 an hour for 40 hours a week. As they complete the training they will be earning $13 per hour. Successfully completing the program will allow them to continue in a four-year-long apprenticeship with built-in wage progressions.
Training will take place in a “Mobile Learning Lab” which will be parked at Madison County Career Center, 133 North Court Street in Wampsville. Unfortunately, the trailer is not available for a photo op before training begins. We are requesting assistance from the media in sharing information about the apprenticeship program with the public so as to generate as many applicants as possible.

WHERE: Knowles Capacitors, 2777 Route 20 East, Cazenovia, NY, 13035. Media parking will be available in “Visitor Parking” area next to main entrance.
