National Tooling and Machining Association Seeks Apprentices

The National Tooling and Machining Association is currently accepting registrations for theirupcoming 2008-2009 apprenticeship year. Since its inception in 1976, the Pittsburgh NTMA Chapter has been the only apprenticeship program for the metalworking industry in Southwestern PA with a precise track record: 

  • Theory instruction for PA Journeyperson Certification or for specific skill set improvement
  • Updated Curriculum that keeps pace with current industry standards
  • Hands-on NIMS Credentialing
  • Quality Instructors with industry experience

An apprenticeship program requires a combination of on-the-job and classroom training. Through the NTMA Apprenticeship program you can complete your classroom training through convenient one evening per week classes. You can then complete your on-the-job training hours with your current employer.

What are the benefits?

  • The opportunity to earn as you learn (Apprentices earn wages that increase as their knowledge and skills increase.)
  • Increased marketability and job security
  • Low program cost with no student loans to repay (Your employer may subsidize all or part of the program cost.)
  • Nationally recognized NIMS Credentials In partnership with the United States Department of Labor, the National Institute for Metalworking Skills has developed a competency based apprenticeship program.

Their apprenticeship program includes NIMS Credentials. You can earn credentials in 8 out of 52 specific occupational competencies (e.g. CNC Milling). The credentials you earn are standards-based, so they are recognized nationwide by any metalworking company that is part of the NIMS credentialing process. Employers are able to monitor and measure employee progress based on knowledge and performance and not on hours of completion. This gives you the opportunity to earn your pay-for-skills promotions quicker.

To apply for the NTMA Apprenticeship Program, call 1.866.326.6862. You currently should be working at a machine or tool and die shop. Assistance may be available if you are unemployed but with experience in the field. The current tuition rates are $800 for individuals registered with a company that is a member of the NTMA and $900 for all other registrations. The deadline to submit your applications is August 25th. Please verify if your company has any education assistance programs and indicate if you or your company will be paying for tuition and / or books on your application form. Payment plans are available upon request. You may be eligible for assistance from state-funded programs. Stop by your local CareerLink Office and ask them if they have any state-funded programs that could assist you with covering the cost of the tuition, such as Individual Training Account Funds (ITAs), OVR Funds and Veteran Assistance. Fund availability varies by county and is also based on your individual financial information.

All registration forms must be received by August 25, 2008.

For more information contact the Pittsburgh Chapter NTMA at 1.866.326.6862.
