Apprentice Program

Manufacturing Alliance Apprenticeship Program

The New York State Manufacturers Alliance – of which the Council of Industry is a founding member – has been successful in obtaining funds in the State Budget for the creation of a New York State Manufacturers Alliance Apprenticeship Program (NYSMAAP).  Administered in the Hudson Valley by the Council of Industry NYSMAAP will be an employer-led public-private pilot program for registered apprentices in manufacturing occupations.

This apprenticeship has two basic elements. The first, On-the-Job Training (OJT), consists of a journey-level, craft person capable and willing to share their experience with an apprentice, in a hands-on manner. The second, Related Instruction (RI), consists of learning more theoretical or knowledge-based aspects of a craft. 

This registered apprentice program will typically be three to four years in duration.

NYSMAA Registered Trades:
