Industrial Manufacturing Pre-Apprenticeship

This preparatory program helps all students—including individuals from underrepresented groups—develop skills in math, blueprint reading, communication and professionalism that provide a solid foundation for a manufacturing apprenticeship and career.

At the completion of this pre-apprenticeship program, students will:

  • Be prepared to enroll in registered apprenticeship programs
  • Begin a career in an entry-level manufacturing position
  • Have experience and preparation for job interview through a mock interviewing practice
  • Possess strong soft skills such as time management, communication, teamwork and responsibility 

Proposed Pre-Apprenticeship

To help fill critical manufacturing positions, Gateway Technical College is working to launch an Industrial Maintenance Pre-Apprenticeship training program. The College is currently seeking support from local companies. Your support does not commit you to providing on-the-job training. Companies will be asked to take part in mock interviews with students as well as consider hiring apprenticeship candidates or having an apprenticeship program of your own.

For more details on what will be covered in the program and the value it can bring to your organization, contact Nicci Pagan at or 262-564-2954.
