June 28: Macomb Community College hosts Employer Information Session about its expanded apprenticeship program

– Thursday, June 16, 2016 12:00AM

Macomb offers employers access to motivated, work-ready candidates, as well as training for existing employees

On Tuesday, June 28 from 7:30-9 a.m., Macomb Community College will host a breakfast meeting at its South Campus in Warren for employers interested in exploring how the college’s expanded apprenticeship program can help them effectively grown their own workforce.

Employers will learn about Macomb’s Michigan Apprenticeship Program Plus (MAP+) program, which offers industry-driven, structured training that allows employers to develop current employees, as well as to interview and hire students. The first cohort of approximately 24 MAP+ students will complete an Industrial Readiness Certificate in August. The work-ready candidates will have completed pre-apprenticeship training classes in foundational skills relevant to skilled trades, apprenticeship and similar work-based learning experiences.

MAP+ funded in part by a grant from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration under the American Apprenticeship Initiative.  The training and education related to MAP+ may have associated financial incentives through complementary funding programs.

The cost to attend the Employer Information Session is $10 per person, which includes a hot breakfast.  It will be held at the John Lewis Student and Community Center (K Building) on Macomb’s South Campus, 14500 E. 12 Mile Road, Warren.  To register online, visit  For more information, call 586.445.7438 or email
