In the manufacturing industry, an apprenticeship could very well be your ticket to career advancement and success. After all, one of the best ways to impress your employer and prove that you want to move up in the industry is to take the initiative and gain more usable skills. Whether you’re just entering the workforce or have been in the industry for years, the solution is simple; sign up for an apprenticeship.

Now you may be wondering how you can do that without accruing debt or needing to take time off from your job. After all, going back to school is expensive and time-consuming. Thankfully, AMTEP offers registered apprenticeships for free!

It doesn’t matter if you’re a young graduate, an older career changer, or a worker interested in career advancement. If you’re worried about being stuck in a dead-end job, an apprenticeship could very well send your career to new heights.

Hands-On Learning

Sitting in a classroom taking tests isn’t the only way to learn. While some people learn best from books, we believe that the best way to gain the skills needed to excel in the manufacturing industry is by on-the-job training. That’s why we bring in experienced mentors who can give you on-the-job training.

Because it’s hands-on, on-the-job training, apprenticeships count towards real work experience, which will impress your boss and improve your resume. You’ll know first-hand how to operate machinery, what to look for in quality control, and more. By the time you’re done, you’ll have enough higher-level skills to be considered for promotions and raises.

Flexible Schedules

An apprenticeship might have long-term benefits to your career, but the short-term concern of finding the time to complete it is valid. Most apprenticeships are about a year long, or 2000 hours, and that can be a daunting requirement when you’re trying to juggle your job, childcare, or any number of other scheduling conflicts.

That’s why the schedules for apprenticeships are flexible and customizable to your specific needs. When you sign up, we will help you develop a training plan that works best for you.

Getting Paid to Learn

So now comes the subject of money. Even if the apprenticeship is free, does it financially make sense to go for it? Yes, because these apprenticeships actually pay you as well! This can be a huge financial relief for someone who doesn’t have a full-time job, or who didn’t go to college due to not being able to afford it.

This may sound too good to be true, but the fact is, you aren’t investing in us; we’re investing in you. We believe the skills you’ll gain through paid apprenticeships will benefit the manufacturing industry, which in turn benefits the economy.

Apprenticeships through AMTEP could very well be the thing you need to keep your career advancing, as you’ll be paid to gain valuable, marketable skills in the manufacturing industry. Don’t undervalue yourself – sign up today to earn the skill set and experience you’ll need to advance your career.
